After a PhD in theoretical physics at the University of Gothenburg, I worked 13 years in industry as R&D manager with acoustics as a special interest. During six of these years, I was also an adjunct professor in Engineering Acoustics at KTH in Stockholm. 1993 I was employed by the Department of Mathematics at Växjö University College and serve now as Senior Professor in Mathematical Physics at Linnaeus University.

My main scientific interests are in the field of analysis, especially partial differential equations with applications in acoustics, electromagnetic wave propagation and quantum optics. I have been active in the building of Växjö University, first as dean of the first faculty board and then as vice rector with responsibility for research and external relations.

Teaching

In undergraduate education, I now teach mainly in partial differential equations and Fourier analysis. Earlier I have taught courses such as Integral Equations, Distribution Theory, Acoustics, Fluid Mechanics, etc. The thesis works in which I'm involved often has a connection to applications. I would like to participate in projects for developing education. In the postgraduate studies, the PhD students' needs govern my involvement.

Research

My activities in research and postgraduate education are within Mathematical Modelling of Wave Phenomena. Both analytical and numerical methods are considered usually with an application in mind, although it can be long-term. Research is conducted primarily within the local research group Waves and signals as well as within the International Center for Mathematical Modelling, both with a strong international involvement. See below for more details.

Commissions

Currently, I am a member of the board of "Linnéakademins forskningsstiftelse" and of "Stiftelsen Markussens studiefond".
