As Senior Research Coordinator, I assist researchers with the research funding process for EU collaborative project applications within MSCA Doctoral Networks, Cluster 4 (digital, industry and space), Cluster 5 (climate, energy and mobility) and the Widening participation and spreading excellence programmes. I also work as a project manager in EU-funded research projects where LiU has the main responsibility and is the coordinator. Within this role, I have led and managed various international cooperation projects.
I am also an associate professor and researcher in advanced structural materials for aerospace related applications at the Division of Engineering Materials (KMAT), the Department of Management and Engineering (IEI). My research includes the development of high-performance materials, surface improvements, mechanical properties and experimental characterisation. I have been the coordinator of two EU and Clean Sky 2 funded projects (DevTMF and AddMan) and involved in several national collaborative projects funded by LIGHTer, SMF Aeronautics, Production2013 and Structural Funds.
I have a research background in materials science, in the field of damage mechanisms in high temperature materials used for gas turbines. I received my PhD from Linköping University in 2007 and worked as a researcher at Rolls-Royce in the UK for five years until I moved back to Linköping.
