Peter Apell

Full Professor at Chalmers, Physics, Condensed Matter Theory

Professor of Living State Physics and Head of Department of Applied Physics. I’ve worked ten years in France, India, Italy, Norway, Spain and the US. Research interests are graphene optical properties, anything plasmonics and medical physics: Body Mass Index and Wound healing. My teaching has a communication intensive style, and with student projects in collaboration with local companies. I have devoted many years building academic structures at three new universities in Sweden. I’ve done my second career choice as communications manager at Kristianstad University.
