New PhD within Mistra Carbon Exit
Alla Toktarova is now starting as a PhD student at the Department of Space, Earth and Environment at Chalmers University of Technology. Her research within Mistra Carbon Exit will assess the future use of energy carriers in industrial processes, with focus on the production and use of materials such as cement and steel in buildings and transport infrastructure.
Growing up in an energy intensive region, I realized that development relies on energy and this motivated me to undertake studies in energy systems at the Moscow Power Engineering Institute in Russia. To deepen my knowledge, I commenced a double degree at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in Finland, a university with a strong focus on renewable energy systems, says Alla.
