Ledamot i IVA samt Fellow i ett antal internationella samfund däribland Royal Society of Chemistry och mottagare av ett flertal priser, däribland Humboldt-Forschungspreis. Handlett 19 doktorander och ca 35 postdocs och forskare, publicerat över 220 artiklar (varav ett tiotal populärvetenskapliga), 1 bok, 9 patent, fler än 70 keynote föredrag (över 13000 citeringar, h-index 62; Google Scholar). Två ’’spin-out’’ företag etablerade. Huvudansvarig för Europeiska keramsällskapets konferens 2011 i Stockholm med mer än 1000 deltagare.

Grundläggande studier av självorganisation av nanopartiklar och utveckling av kolloidala processvägar för att av nanokristaller och biobaserade partiklar och polymerer forma nanostrukturerade hybridmaterial med användbara egenskaper, t.ex. för termisk isolering och starka lättviktsmaterial. En viktig del av forskningen är att använda tidsupplösta, in operando, studier vid synkrotronanläggningar (t.ex. MAX IV, ESRF och Petra III) för att att undersöka och förstå dynamiska molekylära och mesoskopiska självorganisationsprocesser.

Forskning

My research activities span the academic disciplines of materials engineering and applied surface and colloid science often in nanostructural form. The research has resulted in several inventions and both generated patents that have been sold to industry and also lead to the formation of two spin-out companies; NeoZeo AB in 2010 and Cellutech AB in 2013.

Materials for thermal insulation

Funding: Swedish Energy Agency, Wallenberg Wood Science Center

The energy needed to construct buildings and to maintain a pleasant interior environment accounts for more than 30% of the world´s total energy consumption and generates a significant part of the global greenhouse gas emissions. Decreasing heat transfer through better insulation is essential to improve the energy efficiency of buildings. We develop thermally insulating materials based on renewable or widely abundant raw materials with superinsulating properties and investigate fundamental aspects of heat transfer including phonon scattering and moisture-dependence.

Colloidal processing of bio-based nanomaterials

Funding: Wallenberg Wood Science Center (KAW), ERA-NET (Vinnova)

Colloidal processing of nanoparticles based on renewable and Earth-abundant resources and self-assembly of nanoparticles to form novel nanostructured materials with useful properties are at the core of our activities where the fundamental activities aim to generate a better understanding of the molecular or mesoscopic assembly mechanisms. Biomimetic synthesis which involves the integration and assembly of inorganic materials with polymers and biomolecules is another closely related field of interest.

Nanoparticle self-assembly

Funding: Swedish Research Council (VR)

This project aims to generate a deeper understanding of the formation of complex and multicomponent nanostructured materials by tunable assembly of  bio-based and inorganic nanoparticles. We study in real time how nanoparticles assemble to form mesocrystals with complex structures and multicomponent compositions using e.g. time-resolved QCM-D and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) in levitating drops and customized measurement cells.
