I am curious about fundamental materials properties and surface chemistry processes in catalysis as well as how these processes can be controlled in applications for green chemistry and sustainable technologies. Through broad collaborations, methods from traditionally different branches of chemistry and physics are joined as to explore on the atomic level materials “at work”, so-called operando characterisation.

Green Chemistry (KBT245, 7.5 hec)
The course explains the principles of green chemistry and end-of-pipe methods, with a basis in the molecular and materials chemistry, and discusses alternative solutions to support a sustainable development. The level of understanding should be such that the students in their profession as engineers critically can participate in discussions regarding selection of methods for increased sustainability within industrial production of chemicals and fuels, and to avoid environmental stress caused by pollution and energy-related problems.

Modern Catalysis - Principles and Applications (15 hec, graduate level)
The course aims at deep understanding of modern concepts and methods in catalysis with an expansion towards experimental techniques and applications of catalyst technologies. It is designed for doctoral students and experienced materials researchers with an interest in catalysis and surface reactions. Participants should after the course possess the skills to critically analyse catalysts and catalytic reactions on the atomic scale, and design relevant catalyst technologies for industrial, environmental and energy-related problems.

Catalytic Emission Control (outreach course open for KCK members)
The course explains the principles of heterogeneous catalysis with focus on environmental catalysis, i.e., catalytic emission control. The level of understanding should be such that the participants in their profession as engineers critically can participate in discussions regarding selection and evaluation of catalyst technologies for abatement of NOx, hydrocarbon and particulates.
