My education in physics, both under graduate and graduate, was at Åbo Akademi and I received my PhD in 1995 under the supervision of prof. Juhani Kurkijärvi. The topic of my PhD dissertation was theoretical and numerical studies of superfluid 3He. I did postdoctoral research at Northwestern University (1996-1998) and at Karlsruhe University of Technology (1998-2000). Since August 2000 I have been working at Chalmers, first at the department of physics and form 2003 at the department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2). Main topics in my research fall in the field of mesoscopic and unconventional superconductivity. Recently, research on graphene and topological materials have been added to the portfolio.
