Assistant professor in Organic electronics at Linköping University
Membership Period 2015–2020
In my research group we explore nanooptical and organic photonic phenomena that take place at the nano scale, such as the special ability of gold nanoparticles to capture and focus light into extremely small areas, and their use in novel applications. Another of our basic research orientations is organic polymers that can conduct electricity, and the many fascinating opportunities they imply. We are interested in both fundamental science and the development of applications in various fields, such as energy harvesting, energy-efficient displays and new types of sensors.
I am the Young Academy of Sweden's Chair for 2019–2020.

Interests: Play and listen to music, from Russian piano to obscure electonic music. I also like climbing and go boating.
“I see the Young Academy of Sweden as the ideal platform for both discussions about and for influencing the future of research. The wide range of different researchers the Academy represent on the same time provide a stimulating environment for interesting conversations and a breeding ground for interdisciplinary collaborations.”
