Background and activities

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Environmental Engineering and Reactor Technology research group at the department of chemical engineering, studying the stability of amines that are, or can be utilized for CO2-capture, as well as glycols.

Advisor: Hanna K. Knuutila

Representative for the IKP temporary staff in the departmant's leader group from September 2021.
