Research

I took my PhD in April 2014 within Kiln Aerodynamics where I Investigated the cold flow field in a rotary kiln, which is a part of LKAB's pelletizing process. I performed CFD-simulations that I validated with different laser-based measuring techniques (PIV, LDV, PLIF) on a downscaled, simplified model of a kiln.

This project is a part of The Faste Laboratory, a VINNOVA Excellence Centre for Functional Product Innovation. I've continued working with this after I got my degree and I'm also currently a projectleader for another project within Faste focusing on the Functional Product Development Process.
