I am a PhD student in iron- and steelmaking within the process metallurgy group. My research is focused on internal recycling of residues generated within integrated steel plants. My approach is to study how circulating elements within the blast furnace can be handled – within or outside the blast furnace – in order to facilitate an increased recycling. I use physical separation methods, hydrometallurgy, reduction metallurgy and different characterization methods in my work.


I am a teacher in the first cycle course High Temperature Processes where I teach mass- and heat balances, thermodynamic diagrams and solution thermodynamics. I am also involved in different student projects and student labs involving first and second cycle students as well as supervision of master theses.


I graduated the sustainable process engineering master program in 2014 at Luleå University of Technology. My M.Sc. degree is in sustainable process engineering with focus on mineral processing and process metallurgy.
