Fibre and Polymertechnology

Research area:

Major parts of my research have been dealing with surface interaction and surface modifications. I have a strong background in using and developing advance AFM techniques. I have focused my research on wood and wood components mainly on cellulose fibres and cellulose fibrils. Studying the defibrillation process, fibril modifications, joint formation and compatibility problem related to incorporation of fibres and/or fibrils in composite materials and also on the usage of cellulose in new types of products.
