I work as a professor within the field of resource recovery where I focus on thermal treatment. This means techniques such as pyrolysis, gasification and combustion.

I have worked at the University of Borås since the fall 2009. Before that, I studied a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering with Engineering Physics at Chalmers University of Technology. At this university, I also pursued my PhD within the field of Chemical Engineering Design and Forest Products and Chemical Engineering. After a year as post-doc at University of Maine, Orono, I came back for a position as first assistant professor and then senior lecturer. I became docent at this university as well.

At present, I am the main supervisor of five doctoral students funded by  the Energy Agency,the Nigerian government, University of Borås and Sida. I also have funding from Sparbanksstiftelsen Sjuhärad.
