Matilda Backholm appointed as Assistant Professor at Aalto University

Dr. Matilda Backholm was appointed as a tenured Assistant Professor in Soft Matter Physics at the Department of Applied Physics at Aalto University in September 2022.

Professor Backholm is no stranger to Aalto. She has worked as a postdoc at the university since 2015, and prior to that, went from Helsinki to Denmark to Canada doing research and finishing degrees. Always driven by scientific curiosity, Matilda says she was looking for that leap into something new.
