Short presentation

My research group aims at understanding catalysis by enzymes and metal complexes at the quantum level. The research can be divided into three areas:

1. Develop approaches to interpret X-ray spectra of transition-metal catalysts
2. Understand oxygen and hydrogen evolution.
3. Model enzymatic and biomimetic reactions.

The long-term target is to develop catalysts that can be used to generate fuels from solar energy in a renewable energy system. See my project page for more information.

My courses


I got my PhD from Stockholm University in 2005 and worked as a post-doc at Kyoto University (Japan) 2006-2008 and Stanford University (USA) 2009-2011. Since 2011 I have been working at the Theoretical Chemistry program at the Department of Chemistry - Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University.

The current members of my research group are: Erik Källman (graduate student), Mickaël Delcey (researcher) och Rafael Carvalho Couto (researcher).
