I work mainly as a project leader in EU-funded research projects and have primary responsibility for projects in transport area and materials science. I am also a senior lecturer and researcher in high-temperature materials for aero engines at the division Engineering Materials.
As a research coordinator, I also work with larger complex EU research applications that LiU coordinates. I actively help with the entire process, from ideas to submission of proposals. This includes coordination of applications, projects, organisation and documents, internal communication within the consortium, quality review of the applications, support for budgeting and project financing as well as registration and submission of the applications.
I have research background in materials science, in the field of damage and deformation mechanisms in high-temperature materials used in gas turbines. I defended my PhD in 2007 at Linköping University and worked as a researcher at Rolls-Royce in the UK for several years until I moved back to Linköping. In addition, I worked and lived in France and US as master and PhD student.
Currently, I coordinate two own EU collaboration projects and I am the project manager of an EU project in Biology/Environment, which means that I am a very experienced coordinator and project manager.
