I am a PhD student in the area of process metallurgy at LTU. My research is focused on residue products from the base metal production. My work is about characterization, modification and investigation of the residue products from the coppermaking process for external applications, as in road constructions. I use different characterization methods, smelting furnaces and leaching equipment in my research work.


I am lecturing in the courses High temperature processes P0001K and High temperature materials P7006K. I also supervise students doing their master thesis and  assisting with different laboratory equipment.


I have a M.Sc. degree from Luleå University of technology in sustainable process engineering with specialisation: sustainable mineral and metal winning which I graduated in 2015.
