Joakim Pagels is an Associate Professor at the divison of Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology at Lund University, Faculty of Engineering. He has an MSc in engineering physics and in 2005 he received a PhD on combustion aerosols and their measurement. In 2006-2007 he carried out postdoctoral studies at the University of Minnesota, USA with focus on in-situ techniques for particle composition and morphology. His research is mainly focused on health-related aspects of aerosol particle emissions from combustion sources as well as engineered nanomaterials. The research is multi-disciplinary and is commonly carried out in close collaboration with designers of combustion- and particle production systems in one end and toxicologists, occupational hygienists and climate modelers in the other end. On-going research focuses on biofuel emissions that ranges from solid fuel combustion systems such as wood stoves used in Europe and cook stoves used in developing countries as well as traffic emissions from renewable vehicle fuels. The research is carried out within the Lund University Aerosol Laboratory. A main tool is real-time mass spectrometry based techniques for studies of black carbon (soot) particle cores and their mixing with organic components.
