Brief Bio: After obtaining my M.Sc. degree from Department of Chemistry, University of Gothenburg in 2003, I joined Professor Mikael Håkansson's research group at the same university. During my PhD-studies, I focused on absolute asymmetric synthesis, i.e. the synthesis of optically active products without using chiral precursors or catalysts. The method used for this seemingly impossible task is called crystallisation-induced asymmetric transformation. After obtaining my PhD degree in 2009, I moved to the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at University of Southern Denmark in Odense, for a post doc position in the group of Professor Christine J. McKenzie. While in Odense, I worked on metal based oxidants, spin-crossover, thiolate-based macrocyclic complexes and more. In May 2012, I moved to Dr. Kasper Moth-Poulsen’s research group at Chalmers University of Technology for a second post-doctoral position.

Current Research Activities: My present project involves synthesis of new organometallic compounds for storage of solar energy.
