Curiosity that pushes the limits of the mind

Today’s trend is to fund applied research. Yet basic research, the unconditional search for new knowledge, remains important, as it can result in unexpected applications that may change society. Doctoral student Linnea Bågander’s curiosity could break new grounds.

Linnea Bågander started as a fashion design student at the Swedish School of Textiles and became a doctoral student in 2016. Early in her studies, it was apparent that her inclination was towards the artistic field, and in her master’s project she studied the similarities between architecture and clothes.
