In my research I develop models and methods for planning, controlling and follow-up of railway traffic. The overall aim is to improve the utilization of the railway system through improved flexibility, efficiency, and reliability. I am heavily involved also in research coordination to strengthen the research in this area.
I am the director of the national research program Capacity in the Railway Traffic System (KAJT)
and thereby I cooperate closely with Trafikverket and other actors within the Swedish railway research. I am an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at Linköping University and my main employer is RISE Research Institutes of Sweden
. My own primary research area is (nowadays) related to railway punctuality, efficient marshalling yards and flexibility of rail freight transports. I prefer working close to applications and for me it is an important motivator to contribute to the development of the railway system.
Privately, I am a passioned cross country skier and summertime and like long distance running, preferably in the mountains.
