About me

About me

Professor of Inorganic Chemistry since 2012. PhD 1993, Docent 1998. Title of PhD thesis “A critical survey of the grain refining mechanisms of aluminium”. I have studied nucleation and growth during solidification, sintering of ceramic materials, synthesis and characterization of new inorganic compounds.



My main research interests are about synthesis and characterization of inorganic compounds, electrocatalysis for water splitting and valorization of alcohols, sintering and characterization of ceramic composites.
