About me

Arnold Maliniak has received an MSc (Tech.) degree in 1981 from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from Stockholm University in 1988. In 1981-83, he worked as Research scientist in the Institute for Surface Chemistry (YKI) in Stockholm. He did his postdoc in the Department of Chemical Physics, at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel. He returned to Stockholm University, obtained an assistant professor position, subsequently a lecturer position, and became Professor in Physical Chemistry 2001.
