I am an Associate Professor in Solid Mechanics. The focus of my research is on the computational modelling of damage and fracture of lightweight materials, with emphasis on fibre reinforced polymers. The range of application is wide, incorporating everything from crashworthiness to sports and health. I am also co-director of Health Engineering Area of Advance, and also the coordinator of Chalmers initiative in Sports Engineering, Chalmers Sports & Technology.
