Om mig

He/Him. Associate Professor, MSc and PhD Mechanical Engineer, teaching and working around Rail Vehicle Technology. Leadership team at the Centre for ECO2 Vehicle Design. Director of the 5-year program in Vehicle Engineering (Farkostteknik CivEng).

Research

I typically do research around vehicle dynamics and its influence on wheel and rail damage and its impact on the wider railway system. I have participated in Swedish and EU projects, see the Portfolio.

My research interests cover system and subsystem interaction, wheel-rail contact damage, system costs and sustainability, or energy management of novel traction technologies.

Teaching

I am course responsible for the master's level course in Rail Vehicle Technology, dedicated to design and performance of rail vehicles for various operational conditions; and Challenge-based Railway Systems Design for a project-based challenge-tacklign framework. 

I am also actively involved in several courses in Bachelor and Masters level as teacher, supervisor, or facilitator, such as Vehicle Engineering, Rail Vehicle Dynamics, Sustainable development and research methodology. I supervise Master Thesis students each year, aiming for collaborations between industry and academia.

I am interested in Equality and Diversity issues, so I promoted the development of an Equality Module for Bachelor students, and I teach a lecture in Diversity and Equality in the Research Environment in the Sustainable development and research methodology course.

I regularly update my pedagogic skills and apply them to the courses I am involved, including course review and development every year. I also put an effort on publishing in pedagogic journals or conferences.

Management and Outreach

I am Deputy Director at the Centre for ECO2 Vehicle Design, where I have been part of the management group since 2014.

I promoted the KTH-JBS Competence Group, a collaboration within the Railway Sector where Academic and Industrial partners discuss and develop the programmes and courses for increasing the Railway Competence of future rail professionals in Sweden. I have also worked in the Erasmu+ project ASTONRail, with similar objectives at EU level.

I am interested in popularisation of science and research, in the past I have regularly collaborated with Mapping Ignorance.
