Teaching
I teach basic chemical reaction engineering, mathematical modelling, optimization and experimental planning at undergraduate level and advanced chemical reaction engineering, catalysis and regression analysis at graduate level.

Research
Chemical reactors: Slurry reactors have been studied both theoretically by CFD modelling and experimentally. Monolith catalyst reactors is studied both as catalytic converters for emission control and as chemical reactors for chemical industry.
Catalyst deactivation: Catalyst deactivation by coke formatin is studied both for hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions.
Automotive catalysis: Low temperature activity, NOx-abatement and oxygen storage are the main fields of research in the automotive projects.
