I am Maria Hammerstrøm from Oslo, Norway.
I was originally trained as a graphic designer, but then I decided to explore the universe’s big questions instead and took a master’s degree in astrophysics at the University of Oslo.
Now I work as a freelancer full time with a focus on graphic design and science communication. I mainly do design jobs related to science. My graphic design work can be seen on Behance. In addition, I write a lot about space, give talks and appear on TV and radio.
I am the Norwegian contact person for The ESO Science Outreach Network.

The Little Book About the Universe
In the fall of 2019 I published The Little Book About the Universe (Norwegian title: Den lille boka om universet).
The Little Book About the Universe is a book for those who do not know much about the universe and who do not know where to start, and who want an understandable introduction to everything. The book is only available in Norwegian and there is more info and images from the book here.
