Personal profile


My main research area is within airborne particles/aerosols. In addition to characterizing emissions and exposure (physical and chemical), my research has been focused on bridging the gap between emission, exposure, and health effects of airborne particles – and specifically with how particles are deposited in our lungs, which is the critical link between exposure and the health effects of the particles. In this area, one focus has been on understanding the lung deposition and exposure of sensitive groups such as children.

The last decades I have also been active in the research area of NanoSafety, that is the risks related to the introduction of nanomaterials on the market. Much of my work in this area have been focused on emissions and risks related to the disposal and recycling of nano-containing materials after the product’s end-of-life, and towards understanding how these should be handled and recycled in a sustainable and safe manner.

A third focus of my research is on the utilisation of waste/industrial side streams and related risks. This involves the use of XAS (X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy) for determining the speciation of trace metals in complex matrixes.

In my research I actively use of high resolved X-ray spectroscopy methods and is PI of developing a new sample environment for in-flight XPS studies of aerosols at MAXIV.
