About me

Naval Architect, educated at KTH (T-90). PhD on modelling of planning craft in waves. Docent at KTH in Naval Architecture 2019. Today engaged in seakeeping studies where the crew's perspective is central and involved in projects on waterborne public transport. Some more, following the portfolio links to the right.

I teach in KTH Naval Architecture’s courses and supervise BSc, MSc and PhD students. My goal is to set the course content in the practical technological context and to make the students aware of the engineer’s key-role for sustainable development. I have upper secondary school teacher’s exam (Maths and Technology) from Linköping University (2019) and have studied pedagogy for higher education at KTH, most recent courses;Learning for sustainable development (2014) andGender Theory and Gender Equality in Technical Higher Education (2020). Since 2020, I am program manager, together with Magnus Burman, for the master's program Naval Architecture.

Besides teaching and research I take part in related activities at and outside of KTH; the Swedish maritime competence centre Lighthouse, the Symposium on High Speed Marine Vehicles, KTH's PriU group for JML, KTH's Transport Platform and KTH/SCI's skolkollegium.

I am unit manager at the Department of Technical Mechanics with the research groups Lightweight structures, MoveAbility, Naval Architecture and Aero&Space Technology.
