I work 80% of my time at SP, the Swedish National Testing and Research Institute in Borås at the acoustic laboratory, and 20% at Chalmers, Applied Acoustics. Here I am involved in teaching, supervision of M.Sc. and Ph.D students and research. I got my M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at Chalmers in 1997, and started as a Ph.D. student at the Department of Applied Acoustics the same year. I received my Ph.D. in April 2002 with a thesis entitled “Modelling of dynamic contact – exemplified on the tyre/road interaction”. After finalising my Ph.D. I was first employed as project leader, and in 2003 I became Assistant professor. In September 2004 I started working at SP (http://www.sp.se). My research interest is quite broad and I have been involved in some varying research projects. I mainly focus on physical modelling of the tyre/road interaction and thermoacoustics. Further I am interested in such various topics as machinery acoustics, building acoustics, measurement techniques and numerical acoustics.
In 2002 I was involved in a leadership programme at the School of Civil Engineering, where I was member of a group of young researchers. I also participated in the “Summer Institute” in 2004, which is a national pedagogical programme financed by the Council for the Renewal of Higher Education (http://www.rhu.se).
I am currently involved in the following teaching activities:
- Teaching the course “Design of Silent Products” in the masters programme since 2003
- Developing and teaching a ph.d. course in “Experimental Modal Analysis”, given autumn 2004 – 2005
