Sylvie received an award from the king

Sylvie Tesson at the Department of Biology has received a stipend from Anna-Greta and Holger Crafoord’s fund at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. She received the stipend from the hands of king Carl XIV Gustaf at a ceremony in Stockholm.

”I got to know about it more than a month ago. Of course I am very happy”, says Sylvie Tesson.

She receives 100 000 Swedish kronor, money that she will use in her research at the Department of Biology. The research project is entitled ”Identification of ice nucleation active molecules in airborne microalgae for biotechnical and global climate model applications”.

The project focuses on the dispersal and precipitation of microalgae and what consequences there are.

”We still don’t know which molecules that contribute to the ice nucleation. Neither do we know what the consequences might be for the surroundings when the microalgae are deposited to new environments where they could proliferate”, Sylvie Tesson says.
