Søren Roi Midtgaard Portrait

Post-doctoral researcher

Søren Roi Midtgaard is a post doctoral researcher at the Niels Bohr Institute at University of Copenhagen, Denmark. After undergraduate studies in nanoscience at University of Aarhus, Denmark Søren moved to Copenhagen to perform doctoral studies at the department of Chemistry where he was awarded the PhD degree in 2013.
Søren’s main interest lies in the structural understanding of biological processes, which after initial projects centered around NMR and crystallography has led to heavy use of small-angle scattering. As especially small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) is currently under rapid development, a desire to exploit these possibilities to the fullest has led to involvement in numerous industrial and scientific collaborations.

Martin Cramer Pedersen Portrait

Post-doctoral researcher

Coming from a background in theoretical physics and applied mathematics, Martin's research focuses on the theory and application of scattering methods; in particular in the context of structural biology as well as colloid and polymer science. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 from the Niels Bohr Institute and spent the following two years at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Australian National University. His interests comprise high-performance computing, Bayesian statistics, and the structure and function of various biophysical systems as well as differential geometry and topology and the mathematical and technical aspects of scattering - in particular solution-based small-angle scattering. Martin's work is funded by the Synergy- and the BRAINSTRUC-projects.

Nicholas Skar-Gislinge Portrait

Post-doctoral researcher

Nicholas is a post-doctoral researcher within the LINX and NXUS projects. He has a PhD in biophysics from the Niels Bohr institute from 2014, where he investigated the use of nanodiscs as a tool for low resolution structural studies of membrane proteins. From 2013 to 2015 he was awarded a novo STAR fellowship at department of formulation and biophysics at Novo Nordisk A/S and physical chemistry at Lund University. In 2015, he was a post-doctoral researcher at physical chemistry at Lund University.
Nicholas academic interests revolves around studying protein interactions using scattering methods, and applying scattering methods to the challenges found in industry.
