Personal profile

Professional work


I do research within atmospheric aerosol particles with the help of different types of measurements.

Among my responsibilities, I am the main coordinator for the Horizon-Europe project CLIMB-FOREST dedicated to suggest sustianable forestry for entire Europe while taking a holistic view of climate effects including aerosol particles. I am also the manager of the ACTRIS (Aerosols, Clouds, Trace gases Reserach Infrastructure Stations) background station Hyltemossa within ACTRIS Sweden.

I have different research interests beside forestry and the Hyltemossa field site. I am also interested in measurements of particle number size distributions, exposure to ship emissions, dust particles, Lagrangian aerosol measurements, transboundary aerosol particles, source/receptor modelling, secondary organic aerosol formation, new particle formation, and urban emissions.


The research is driven to gain more knowledge and certainty of the health and climate effects of atmospheric particles.



I am currently course responsible for Environmental mesurement methods (FKFN35), Thermodynamics and applications (FMFF05), and Physics 1-2, part b (TBAA20/21). 


I am teaching in the Aerosol Technology (MAM242) and Aerosols and Health course.



I have participated in several TV news interviews and radio interviews about the research on forest issues and atmospheric particles. Has also participated in several meetings and workshops for the public, and written countless popular science articles, letters to the editor and debate articles on climate and health effects of particles.


I have a personal X account and am also helping out with the ACTRIS Sweden and Lund Aerosol lab X articles.

Societal impact

In the CLIMB-FOREST project we have contacts with about 30 different forestry stakeholders for suggesting alternative forestry methods to cope with climate change and biodiversity issues.

I have been or is participating in stakeholder dialogue, meetings and evaluations with Shipwoners' association, Transport Agency, Transport Administration, SMHI, IMO, Malmö, Gothenburg, and Landskrona municipalities.
