My main research is in the area of applied mathematics and computational physics/chemistry.

A major part this work involves developing efficient methods and computer software for first-principles calculations on large atomic systems (1000 atoms or more), based on Density-Functional Theory (DFT), with applications mostly on defects in semiconductors, but also on nanostructures and biochemical molecules.



I teach engineering students in mathematics, numerical analysis and parallel computing. Also give a number of PhD courses on modelling in materials science.


Part time, I am also advanced consultant in scientific computing and project leader at the High Performance Computing Centre North at Umeå University.
