Personal Description

In 2012 I got my master degree in Mining and Geotechnical Engineering from Luleå University of Technology and directly started to work as researcher in the Division of Rock Mechanics. I remained in that position until September 2013 when I started my PhD in the division of Structural and Construction Engineering. 

In my research I focus on plastic shrinkage cracking in concrete in general and in slabs and thin concrete structures in particular. Through a combination of experimental and theoretical researches, I aim to gain a better understanding of the whole plastic shrinkage cracking process and the influence of different variables.
