− I came to Sweden in 2007 to continue my education towards a Master degree in the program Recourse Recovery − Sustainable Engineering.

How come you decided to do your doctoral studies at the University of Borås?

−Everything started with my master thesis which made me become interested in doing research more in the area of combustion of wastes in waste-to-energy boilers.

Why did you choose to focus on the current subject?

−My previous work experience was related to the energy industry, and the combination of knowledge that I have learned during the master program made me interested in working and doing research in the area of sustainable energy technology.

How will your research benefit improvements of environment, society and/or industry?

−As we know, the energy industry needs to move more and more toward sustainable energy systems, which is important for both environment and society. My research area helps to reduce the landfilling of municipal and industrial wastes and instead convert them to energy (electricity and district heating), through state-of-the-art combustion systems.
