Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

Know someone who might be interested? Nominate a future curator of Sweden.

is @sweden 2017-08-14 to 2017-08-20

Last week I was a researcher, working in a lab and publishing scientific papers in Stockholm. This week I’m starting a new job as a science communicator at the MAX IV Laboratory in Lund. Follow along on @Sweden for my first week in a brand new life and to learn about this Swedish particle accelerator.


I come from a small town in the UK called Oswaldtwistle which is home to the biggest Pear Drop in the world (Google it). I’m passionate about science and language learning which led me to Stockholm. I write and give talks about science and outreach, you can find out more on my website BenLibberton.com or my Twitter account @BenLibberton.
