In the third episode of Researching in Times of Covid-19, host Barry Fitzgerald (Science Communication Officer at TU Eindhoven) spoke to Oded Raz, Associate Professor in the department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Oded is from Israel and he completed his PhD in Tel Aviv. He has been based at TU/e for more than 13 years. His research focuses on photonic integrated devices and teaching is a passion for Oded.

Prior to the quarantine lockdown, Oded was in the middle of teaching a course for more than 200 students. However, the lockdown situation has forced him to shift to online education. In this episode Oded discusses the change to online education and the lessons that he has learned from the process.

Stay safe and stay healthy.

In the second episode of Researching in Times of Covid-19, host Barry Fitzgerald (Science Communication Officer at TU Eindhoven) spoke to Evan Milacic, a PhD candidate in the department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Evan is from the Netherlands and his work is focused on the plastic industry. He is working on improving the production of polyolefin using both experiments and computer simulations.

And that’s where things get interesting for Evan. Although he can’t do any more experiments for the moment, his safety net is his work on simulations. However, that also comes with some concerns as you’ll find out in this podcast episode.

Stay safe and stay healthy.

In the first episode of Researching in Times of Covid-19, host Barry Fitzgerald (Science Communication Officer at TU Eindhoven) spoke to Maria Pastrama, a postdoctoral researcher in the department of Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Maria is originally from Romania, and completed her PhD in Vienna before working as a postdoctoral researcher in Leuven, Belgium. She then moved to her current position at TU/e in November 2018. Her research focuses on cartilage and as of January 1st 2020, she has been working on a 2-year EU funded EuroTech project on cartilage tissue engineering.

In the first half of March 2020 Maria was preparing for a research visit to EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. However, things did not go as planned as you’ll find out in this podcast episode.

You can read more about the effect of Covid-19 on Maria’s work in a short article on Sparrho.
