I work as professor in polymer technology in the Resource recovery research area. Our aim is to develop and study new polymer materials, which are made from biobased raw materials. Natural fibres and biopolymers are used in composites and plastics, and we study particularly different manufacturing methods to be able to produce these in a economical way.

I have been at University of Borås since 2003. My previous appointments includes work in the chemical industry in Finland, and at the research institute Swerea SICOMP in Piteå, Sweden. I got my PhD degree in 2003 at University of Helsinki in Finland. At the moment we work on two larger research projects financed by Mistra. International collaboration is going on with universities in Korea and India.
