The particles, which have an aerodynamic diameter of 10 micro meter or less, PM10, constitute a significant part of the air pollutants that affect our health. The research that has been conducted and is ongoing is done in close collaboration with among others, the Swedish Road and Transport Research Institute (Statens Väg- och Transportforskningsinstitut, VTI, in Linköping.
The work focuses on wear and tear particles from tires and road pavement and the inflammatory effects these particles have on the respiratory tract.
In parallel with research I am very much involved in teaching at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, mainly in the Medical Programme and the Medical Biology Programme.
Examination and its importance in learning is an important part of my educational commitment.
