Elna is a researcher at Combustion Physics and am teaching at the faculty of science and the technical faculty. Her main educational activity is the rola as cooridnator for the meteorlogy education. Elna is involved in research concerning chemical kinetics in combustion processes. The research is mainly development of chemical kinetics models of a range of fuels, fossil fuels as well as biofuels.

From 2014 Elna is appointed “biträdande universitetslektor” at Combustion Physics and during the last few years her work has mainly concerned development of reduced chemical kinetic models for use in CFD simulations.
