Doktor (or in American: Doctor) Lisa A. Fredin got her B.S. in Chemsitry, Biochemistry, and Applied Mathematics from The University of Texas at Austin in 2003 and her PhD in Materials and Theoretical Chemistry from Northwestern University in 2012. She grew up in Texas; “born but NOT bred Texan”. Her mother is from California and her father from Sweden and “y’all” was not a common word heard growing up.
Lisa is currently in Lund, Sweden as a postdoc in Theoretical Chemistry. This blog will tell the tale of Lisa’s travels and thoughts on science, culture and life abroad during her time in Sweden.
