My research is mainly focused on circularity in the metallurgical industry; however, the research is not limited to this topic. The focus is the utilization of oxidic by-products, and I utilize an experimental approach and in-depth characterization to address my research questions. In addition to traditional pyrometallurgical equipment, I use our high-temperature furnace rheometer system, IR-heated CSLM, DSC, and optical dilatometer. For characterization purposes, I use the scanning electron microscopy park, X-Ray diffraction, and LA-ICP-MS.


I have taught basic thermodynamics for metallurgical engineers in the course High-temperature processes for many years. Today, my main contribution is within the course High-temperature materials, where I teach phase diagrams. In addition, I am involved in parts of the courses for 2nd cycle students in Minerals and Metallurgical Engineering in the Master Programme in Sustainable Process and Chemical Engineering.


I defended my Ph.D. thesis in Process Metallurgy at Luleå University of Technology in the autumn of 2019. I graduated from the sustainable process engineering master's program in 2014 at Luleå University of Technology. My M.Sc. degree is in sustainable process engineering with a focus on mineral processing and process metallurgy.
