Student story: Aya Abdelsalam, Medical Physics

Sometimes big life changes are even better when shared with someone. Egypt-native Aya Abdelsalam applied to the Master’s degree program in Medical Physics together with her spouse Eslam. Regardless of their different research orientations, both have been able to pursue their special interest in medical physics – thanks to the flexibility of studies at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF).

I'm excited about all the research fields in our department. When I read any paper that tackles a specific medical problem, I can relate to people I know with similar issues, and how their quality of life can change due to this kind of research.
