Kristina Wärmefjord

Docent at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Product Development

Kristina Wärmefjord took her PhD 2011 and works within the research group of “Geometry Assurance & Robust Design”. Her main research focus is on variation simulation for non-rigid parts and methods to decrease the gap between simulated values and the real outcomes, i.e. increase the accuracy of non-rigid variation simulations. With an increased accuracy, quality can be improved, simulations can replace physical prototypes and costs can be reduced.The work is done in close collaboration with a number of companies, mostly in automotive and aerospace industry.Kristina is the assistant director of Wingquist Laboratory VINN Excellence Center and project leader for the projects “Smart Assembly” and “Virtual Robust Design and Simulation Methods”.
