Water and Environmental Engineering at the Department of Chemical Engineering
Area of expertise:
Reduction of organic micropollutants, for example pharmaceuticals, with biological degradation and adsorption to activated carbon
My goal with my research is to increase the state of knowledge for advanced wastewater treatment both nationally and internationally.
Core interest in research field:
Creating cleaner water and a safe environment
Feelings about being a researcher:
I appreciate the variation in my work and the possibilities to contribute to social development by means of cleaner water
Biggest challenges/opportunities in research:
My research is mostly based on long term experiments which does not always fit well with project deadlines and PhD studies. In the larger perspective, I see a challenge in nationwide implementation of advanced treatment for pharmaceutical reduction. But this is also where I find the biggest opportunities. I think Sweden has great potential for upgrading the wastewater treatment systems.
