Background and activities

Ph.D. candidate at the Department of material science and engineering, NTNU. I study the slag in the silicon and ferrosilicon production, both the accumulated and the slag tapped out of the furnace.

My background is a MSc in Industrial chemistry and biotechnology from NTNU. In my masterthesis I studied one of the reactions inside the silicon furnace, 

2SiO2 + SiC = 3SiO + CO.
