Teaching Experience

Principal lecturer and examiner in appr. 30 courses on biophysical electron microscopy and electron crystallography, quantum mechanics of electron microscopy, Fourier optics, mathematical methods of imaging, physical chemistry and general chemistry

Design of teaching material for courses in biophysical electron microscopy, mathematical methods of imaging and quantum mechanics of electron microscopy

At the Karolinska Institute's Center for Structural Biochemistry in Huddinge I designed, together with other researchers, new courses in structural biochemistry. My main teaching responsibility there was electron microscopy and I have also given courses and lectures at other universities in the Nordic countries.  At KTH I have initiated a biophysical imaging track within a master program in medical imaging. Within this program I have taught courses in mathematical methods of imaging, Fourier optics, quantum mechanics of electron microscopy and biophysical electron microscopy.
