Research

My research in mechanical engineering is focused on environmentally friendly lubricant characteristics and performance, such as synthetic estrars properties. The wear of ultra high strength Boron steel and friction in lubricated contacts between Boron steel and other steel is also part of my research.

Teaching

Teaches in mechanical engineering, hydraulics, tribology, etc..
During 2009 - 2011 Project Manager for LTU venture Shell Eco Marathon, also known as Baldos project.
