Research Agenda:
The core is to build from liquid-rich state, gels, emulsions, dispersions, solutions, colloids toward solid organizations. She combines forest products technology, materials science and renewable resources for advancing sustainable materials engineering. The research efforts involve cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignins with emphasis on surface, interface, and intermolecular interactions.

Director of studies, graduate school of Materials science – Chemistry and chemical engineering
Vice precident of education (interim), European Polysaccharide Network of Excellence (epnoe.edu)
​Examiner of KPO045 Biological materials and KTK112 Chemistry for engineers​
Current research projects: 
FET Open on sustainable foams
Oxidized hemicelluloses for films and gels (Swedish Research Council)
