About me

I have 35 years of experience as civil engineering contractor, consultant and scholar in the construction sector, and thus involved in many infrastructure projects and research. Since 2010, I am a Full Professor in Geotechnology and Head of the Division Soil- and Rock Mechanics at KTH. Before that, I had a shared position as Associate professor and as Technical Manager of the Foundation Region at Skanska Sweden AB. I have also worked as a consultant for 10 years at Tyréns as a specialist and researcher. My research interests are mainly related to ground improvement methods, risk and reliability analysis for design and construction in soil and rock, and more recently discrete element modeling of railway embankments, artificial intelligence, and LCC/LCCA for geotechnical constructions. The division works on a wide front and has many funders such as the Swedish Transportation Administration, SBUF - the construction industry's organization for research and development, BeFo - Rock Engineering Research Foundation, SVC- Swedish Hydropower Centre, SKB - Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co, The Swedish Research Council Formas and several consultant and contractor companies. I have been a supervisor for 20 degreed Ph.D.- and Licentiate students. I have also been a supervisor and examiner for more than 130 MSc thesis works, responsible for several courses at the undergraduate, graduate och doctoral levels. I am presently a member of The Board of Education at KTH, Deputy Director of Third Cycle Education at the School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), and Head of the Doctoral Program in Civil and Architectural Engineering
