Research Officer at Svenska Aerogel AB

I am research officer at Svenska Aerogel AB and industrial PhD student at the department of Engineering Science, Applied Materials Science, Uppsala University. Svenska Aerogel AB develops, adapts, and produces a nanoporous silica based material with properties like aerogels but considerably cheaper to produce. I do research on the synthesis and analysis of the nanoporous materials using different analytical tools to understand and model the structure of the materials with the aim to enhance the material properties depending on application area for optimised efficiency. Analysis techniques include e.g. Electron Microscopy Methods. I also do extensive studies on understanding the maturing process of the products to support quality assurance and to improve work processes and efficiency.

Previously I worked at St Andrews University in Scotland on a project focussing the design, fabrication and experimental realization of ultra-lightweight advanced Aerogel materials. I did my BSc in Physics and MSc. in x-ray Crystallography.

Main fields of interest:  Synthesis and applications of nanoporous materials for industrial development
