I am a PhD student at Department Forestry and Wood Technology connected to The Bridge - a unique collaboration between IKEA and Linnaeus University. A programme for entrepreneurship, innovation and production – for a better everyday life at home for the many people. A multi-disciplinary research and education cooperation on life at home and the conditions of production. My research topic is focused on the interactions between different painting systems and wood properties.
