Research 

My research focuses on the preparation of inorganic energy materials on several length scales. Currently, my focus lies on layered materials that convert electrical energy to chemicals, e.g. hydrogen from water splitting or CO2 utilization. Towards this goal, we are synthesizing novel compounds in the lab, determine their crystal structure and make them into functional devices such as catalysts.

 

Sustainability aspects

Finding new catalyst is paramount to reducing the energy consumption in the chemical industry. I also study how to artificially structure catalysts on the nanoscale and improve the conversion efficiency at it the responsible atomic site. These topics have the potential to significantly reduce the needed amount of rare elements and electricity. My research will thus support the UN goals for sustainable development towards clean energy and utilization of atmospheric CO2.

On this page you can read more about the research being done by the WISE Fellows. In 2022, WISE initiated its inaugural WISE Fellow strategic faculty recruitment drive. Each of the six participating universities, alongside Luleå University of Technology, announced research profiles tailored to the recruitment of Assistant or Associate Professors. These recruitment packages included salaries for two postdoctoral researchers and two PhD students. By 2023, a total of twelve positions had been successfully filled at Stockholm University, Chalmers University of Technology, Luleå University of Technology, Lund University, and the Royal Institute of Technology
