Tiina Nypelö

Associate Professor at Applied Chemistry

Since 2020 Associate professor (docent) and prior to that since 2017 Assistant professor at the Division of Applied Chemistry at Chalmers.

“All that I do targets new materials from trees. On a personal note, I would like to see that we in general need less short term materia in our everyday life. With my work I want to contribute to make the ones we really need to be less accumulative and less harmful to people and nature.”

The core is to build from liquid-rich state, gels, emulsions, dispersions, solutions, colloids toward solid organizations. She combines forest products technology, materials science and renewable resources for advancing sustainable materials engineering. The research efforts involve cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignins with emphasis on surface, interface, and intermolecular interactions. She holds a Doctor of Science degree from Aalto University (Finland) 2012 from Forest Products Technology, and a Master of Science degree in Textile technology, fiber materials science, from Tampere University of Technology (Finland) 2007. Her appointment at Chalmers is also affiliated with Wallenberg Wood Science Center (wwsc.se). Tiina Nypelö is a co-founder of All Wood Composite Platform at Chalmers: https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Scientific%20initiatives/All-Wood-Composite-Platform
