    Major in materials chemistry.

My research focuses on the fundamentals of structure-property correlations of new materials, with the aim of understanding how materials can be designed from the atomic scale structure and up to control their properties. My experimental expertise is centered around magnetron sputter deposition, X-ray diffraction, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Most of my research is connected to thin film materials, in particular multi-component thin film materials, such as alloys, nitrides, and carbides.

I am presently leading research activities on:

  • Multi-component / high-entropy materials, in particular thin films
  • Coatings in connection to additive manufacturing

This research is conduced within the inorganic research programme at the Department of Chemistry - Ångström laboratory.
