My research take place in an interdisciplinary environment, where the research questions are approached and investigated from several perspectives and by participants from a number of research areas, using qualitative as well as quantitative methods. The main methods I use are life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC).
The projects I am, or recently have been, involved in covers a diversity of areas, for example, functional sales of indoor lighting, using AI to develop maintenance strategies, a new method for mineral and metal extraction, and electric non-road mobile machinery. My main task is to evaluate the effect on environmental impact, cost, energy and resource use in a life cycle perspective.
I also have extensive experience in research on transport and infrastructure, such as life cycle assessment of roads, road surface characteristics and the effect on rolling resistance and traffic fuel use, efficient use of engine heaters and the effect on electricity use due to longer and heavier freight trains.
