What are you going to work on?
The project I will be working on will study the forces that affect grouting when tunneling. During my time as a doctoral student, I will perform a number of different experiments where freshly mixed grout is exposed to different kinds of forces. The purpose of these experiments is to then draw conclusions about how to improve the design of grouting in tunneling.
Tell us a little about your background
I come from a small community called Fjärdhundra which is located outside Enköping. I started studying for a Master Programme in Civil Engineering at Luleå University of Technology in 2016 and recently wrote my thesis on the impact of blasting on grouting. I then chose to continue studying this subject by becoming a doctoral student at LTU.
What do you do in your freetime?
In my free time I like to exercise, read, hike and spend time with my friends and family.
