Protection of our environment and sustainability are challenges we need to address and as civil engineer there is a huge possibility to make a positive contribution as roughly 40% of the greenhouse gases are coming from the building sector. This is my motivation to design resource-efficient composite structures and contribute to a sustainable future by sharing, connecting, gaining and passing on knowledge. As associate senior lecturer I have a strong focus on research activities, which will be complemented with teaching activities here at Linnaeus University.


My teaching activities are related to the material concrete, composite structures including timber, and sustainability. Courses I am involved in are ‘Concrete constructions 1 and 2’, ‘Energy and climate efficient construction’, ‘Conceptual structural design’, ‘Building technology 1’, and professional training in ‘Design of cross-laminated timber structures’. Furthermore, my academia work comprises supervision of Bachelor and Master theses.


Composite and hybrid structures are a possibility for resource efficient design and main focus of my research, which is based on experimental investigation on the one hand, and modeling on the other hand. Additional knowledge can be gained, if simple tests are combined with new models for the evaluation methods. This research strategy has been proven successfully during my research activities at Linnaeus University and University of Technology in Vienna. Aiming for increased service life and sustainable design increases the interest in long-term behavior of building materials and structures. Here at the Department of Building Technology at Linnaeus University, knowledge in time-dependent material and structural behavior and experimental design is extended and strengthened continuously.
