Personal profile


My research mainly deals with experimental studies of gas-phase processes, such as combustion, using laser-based methods for diagnostics. In later years, this research has, in particular, included issues related to the combustion of biomass fuels, such as fuel-nitrogen conversion or release of alkali compounds. Laser-based methods for measuring quantitative species concentrations are primary tools in these investigations, carried out in close collaboration with expertise in chemical modeling. In this research, we also consider the utilization of biomass from a holistic perspective, e.g. by using the porous biochar produced in pyrolysis/gasification as material in technical applications. The laser-based methods are generally very useful for studies of reactive flows and have also been employed in studies of thermal processes in batteries.

In addition to research in combustion diagnostics, I also have five years of experience in the development and application of advanced microscopy techniques based on short-pulse lasers and non-linear optical processes. This was acquired as a researcher at Chalmers University of Technology.
