Meet Björn-Ola Linnér
Björn-Ola Linnér intended to be a social studies teacher. Instead, he became a climate researcher. He had never imagined an academic career. Yet, he became a professor at the Department of Thematic studies - Environmental Change in Linköping and, as a researcher, plays an active role in the environmental debate.

Meet three of our 323 professors
Claes Lundström is an adjunct professor of medical visualisation
Medical pictures are a central part of healthcare
Diagnostics and choosing treatments are often based on visual examinations with X-ray or microscopy. These pictures are extremely information rich, which is a big asset, but it also means that they are time consuming and hard to interpret. Medical visualisation involves supporting doctors and healthcare staff to help them use big data to make decisions.
Anna Storm is professor of technology and social change
Post-industrial landscapes and how they change, both physically and in peoples’ consciousnesses
This might be shut-down factories which have been given a new purpose, or abandoned facilities which in their decline can express both powerlessness and a romantic ruins aesthetic. It might also be polluted and dangerous places – ones which highlight the unequal choices we face when choosing where we live.
Neil Lagali is professor of experimental ophthalmology
With advanced laser microscopy, he examines patients with eye problems to find changes on the cell level in the cornea
Eye diseases cause blindness in millions of people around the world. In order to have good vision, light must be able to enter the eye and pass unimpeded through the cornea, which is the outer window of the eye. Good optics and a clear window are central to our vision.
