I have a background in basic research in cellulose, lignin and pectin biodegradation and have in recent years engaged myself in lignin biopolymerization. Furthermore, I have been involved in biotechnological processing of flax fibres for textile purposes, and the use of enzymes in pulp and wood analytical chemistry. Here I got experiences in the combination of enzymatic and chemical treatments. I am also teaching in wood chemistry and wood biotechnology.
