About me

I am a Professor at the Dept. of Applied Physics, KTH-Royal Institute of Technology. My research group is working with ultrasound applied to lab-on-a-chip devices, a research field termed "Acoustofluidics". We are interested in using ultrasound for manipulation of particles and biological cells (acoustophoresis / acoustic trapping), and fluids (acoustic streaming). The most important application is 3D cell culture and micro-tissue and micro-tumor engineering.

I did undergraduate studies at Lund Institute of Technology (Engineering Physics, 1993-1998; Profile: Biomedical Optics), and postgraduate studies at Royal Institute of Technology (Physics, 1999-2004; Profile: Ultrasound-enhanced immunosassays), followed by postdoctoral research at Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Berlin, Germany (2004-2005; Profile: Dielectrophoresis for cell handling).

I am Program Director of the five-year Degree Programme in Engineering Physics (CTFYS), KTH. My reseach lab and office is located at at SciLifeLab, Gamma-3 (Div. for Biophysics). Since May 2024 I am Head of the Division for Biophysics at KTH.
