Jon Petter Gustafsson
I am a Professor in Soil Chemistry, and my main research focus is on processes that determine the solubility and bioavailability of metals and phosphorus. Knowledge on these processes can help us in developing innovative new technologies to, for example, assess the risk of pollutants in contaminated areas, remove metals from polluted waters, and to recover phosphorus from wastewater streams. Important tools in this research include not only traditional field and laboratory techniques but also state-of-the-art geochemical models and synchrotron radiation. I have developed the Visual MINTEQ software (see link on the right). My main affiliation is the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), but I am also a Guest Professor at KTH..
I am involved in teaching at both KTH and SLU concerning biogeochemistry and risk assessment, see links below to my KTH courses.
