Weathering of phyllosilicates. Microbial mobilization of metals.
Co-advisor for 3 graduate students: Frédéric Mathurin and Linda Alakangas at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, and Frida Edberg at Stockholm University (finishes in March 2011)
I have worked as hydrochemist/ project manager of the geochemistry program at SKB since January 2008. Before that I had a junior researcher position at the department of Applied and Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University that originally was placed at the department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Microbiology at Göteborg University. This project was funded by the Swedish Research Council (VR) and involved laboratory experiments studying microbial mobilization of trace metals from Alum shale at both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. In 2001 I did my first trip to Äspö HRL to study anaerobic biofilm growth in situ.
I got my microbiology training during my post-doc at the Pennsylvania State University, USA 1998-1999.
