Friday, 30th of September, Vilde successfully defended her PhD-thesis entitled: “Fundamental Aspects of Thermodynamics of Small Systems Investigated Through Molecular Simulations and Theoretical Descriptions”. The opponents of the thesis were Ass. Prof. Christelle Miqueu from the University of Pai & Adour, and Dr. Ivan Latella from Laboratoire Charles Fabry in France. Prof. Astrid de Wijn from NTNU was the thesis administrator. Ass. Prof. Sondre Schnell has been Vildes main supervisor, and I have served as her co-supervisor. It was a great day!
