Working with reduced kinetics, creating computationally cheap chemistry models for combustion applications (e.g. Spark-Ignition-, Compression Ignition engines and gas turbines). These models are designed to be used in Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations, with primary focus towards renewable biofuels such as methanol, ethanol and propanol.


* Active within DiL (Doktorander i Lärande), where I present research regarding sustainability and renewable fuels to children from the age of 3-15. The lecture is tailored to the specific age category of each assignment.

* Each year during NMT-days at LU, I give a lecture "Det brinner i min dator", where I explain to high school students what a combustion scientist could be doing. The lecture is filled with light heartedness and jokes, in an attempt to create a positive first impression of academia for the next generations of students.
