Ph.D., Senior Lecturer
My general interest is systems analysis applied on the energy system and the interaction between the energy system and other technical systems. Beside research, I have a strong interest in education in energy engineering and connected areas.

Area of interest

FORE - A Mechanical pulp based multi-product mill

BAT - Best available technology in mechanical pulping: A sub-project in the research profile energy efficient mechanical pulping.
