- I think it's really nice to study informatics in Bergen. We have a very good study environment. There is always a possibility to get help from both lecturers and fellow students, no matter what it should be! It's a good environment for learning here, and everyone helps everyone learn new things.
- I really enjoy working here with the people in the visualization group, and also the opportunities for collaborating with other scientists. Besides work, I think the city of Bergen is really amazing. Both my partner and I love the nature that the surroundings of Bergen have to offer, and the large metal community here as well.
- The position offered by UiB was perfectly catered to my research interests, and the project allowed for progression in an exciting direction that would be of personal appeal. Not to mention the opportunity to work at a great institute situated in such a picturesque city!
