My education and my industrial background have provided me with a deep understanding of materials on all length scales, from properties on the atomic scale, to macro-scale components and their performance. I have extensive hands-on experience and expertise from product, process and materials development in the manufacturing industry, including additive manufacturing. My former roles include Senior R&D Engineer and R&D Manager at Sandvik Coromant, as well as Application Engineer for Additive Manufacturing at Linde Gas AB. My academic merits also include regularly held lectures at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, as well as supervision of MSc and PhD students.
