In my research I use computer calculations and methods to predict and develop new materials with potential for being synthesized, and to identify and understand the mechanisms that can explain why a material is stable.

My academic careere started at Lund University with a master's degree in physical chemistry, followed by PhD-studies in material science focused on thin film physics at Linköping University. During my postdoc at National University of Science and Technology in Moscow (MISiS ) and Materials Theory at ETH Zürich I focused on magnetic materials in layered form and with magnetism and electricity being closely intertwined, so called multiferroic materials.

Present research projects:

  • Development of theoretical methods for identifying the emergence of chemical ordering or solid solution disorder when different kinds of atoms are mixed.
  • Executing high performance computing on supercomputers for predicting new materials.
  • Magnetism in layered materials.

I have principal responsibility to secure the availability to the national supercomputing resources for large scale projects at the Materials Design division Thin Film Physics division at IFM.
