Prof. Sjöström’s first destination was Beijing Wuzi University, where he was warmly welcomed by Guo Qian, Dean of the University of Statistic and Computer Science, Lu Yinan, from international collaborations and exchanges, and Jiang Tao, Assistant Dean. Together, they engaged discussions regarding prospective collaborations and exchanges involving students, PhD candidates, and researchers.

Additionally, Prof. Sjöström also reconnected with Shan Gao, a former exchange student who now work as an Assistant Professor at the university. It was in 2021-2022 that Shan Gao got the opportunity to do one year as an exchange PhD-student abroad. She was interested in Light field imaging and found Prof. Mårten Sjöström and his research team Realistic 3D at Mid Sweden University, as a good match to her work.

Next stop for Prof. Sjöström was Beijing Jiatong University, where he held presentation for a research group led by Prof. Gangrong Qu, with whom Prof. Sjöström previously has co-published with Dr. Shan Gao.

- Prof. Qu is a mathematician with an expertise in inverse problems for image-related problems, which complements my research very well, says Prof. Mårten Sjöström.

Concluding his visit to China, Prof. Sjöström met Anthony Trioux, a French researcher who currently work as an Assistant Professor at Xidian University in Xi'an. Their discussions was initiated during Anthony's prior visit to Mid Sweden University in May 2022, and were now resumed.

- We continued our discussions to explore research opportunities during this visit and will advance them on a future visit to China, concludes Prof. Sjöström.
