Short presentation

PhD/docent in engineering science. My activities include teaching at both undergraduate & graduate levels and research on synchrotron-based analysis of energy materials, in particular thin film solar cells.

My research interests aim at generating a deep understanding of the correlation between materials functionality and their properties, which will greatly enhance rational design and optimisation of better materials.

Board Member of Uppsala Center for Photon Sciences.
