Kort presentation

My research activities concern primarily the areas of molecular/nano/bio photonics, computational nano-, bio-and biomedical technology and X-ray physics, being a mix of method development and problem oriented applications in collaboration with experimentalists.

I graduated 1979 as PhD in experimental atomic and molecular physics at Uppsala U. After a couple of PostDoc years in USA I became in 1981 assistant professor in Quantum Chemistry at Lund U, in 1983 associate professor in the same subject at Uppsala U, and in 1989 research professor appointed by the Natural Science Research Council. I became the first holder of the chairs in Computational Physics at Linköping University in 1990 and in Theoretical Chemistry at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm in 1998, where I head (to 2017) the Department of Theoretical Chemistry and Biology. Since 2018 I am back in Uppsala, now as Senior professor. I participate in a number of national and international networks in my research areas and hold several guest professorships abroad. Among awards I can mention the Uppsala Bjurzon award, the Swedish Björn Roos award and the Changjiang Distinguished Professorship awarded by the Ministry of Education of China.


During the last couple of years I have been involved in the following research
