About Per's research

I am an experimental physicist and materials scientist specializing in thin film physics; I study and develop coatings for applications in electrical contacts, hard coatings such as tools, and energy-related applications such as fuel cells and thermoelectric materials for waste heat recovery, as well as fundamental materials studies to understand the underlying physics. I coordinate and manage several research collaborations with the industry.

Interests: Sports. Holds a black belt, 1 dan, in judo and is a referee at the Swedish elite level.

I am a member of the Young Academy of Sweden because it's an excellent forum for both science communication and policy, and provides a voice for younger researchers. But mostly because it is very rewarding for everyone involved.
