My field of research is homogenization. Homogenization is the branch of mathematics where partial differential equations with rapidly oscillating coefficients are studied. Besides pure mathematical problems I have also worked with different applications, mostly within tribology, composite engineering and flow in porous media.

Current assignments at LTU

  • Head of the department of Mathematical sciences (mathematics, mathematical statistics and scientific computing)
  • Chair professor in mathematics
