Present position

I work as Researcher in the department of Electromagnetic Engineering EME, within the school of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science EECS, at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH in Stockholm.


KTH's automatic Profile page for me gives some further details of course-involvement.

Undergraduate teaching.   In the past six years I have been responsible for courses in Electric Circuit Analysis for several programs: Energy and Environment (EI1120), Electrical Engineering (EI1110), and Information Technology and Microelectronics (EI1102). These have been adjusted to the focus of the program, but all contain at least basic dc, transient and ac analysis of linear circuits. Currently I am teaching just the Energy and Environment course. Besides this I have contact with Electrical Engineering students in their early years at KTH through project tasks and mentoring.

Masters teaching.   Within the international MSc program in Power Engineering I am involved in courses and thesis supervision. I am responsible for a course in Power System Protection (EI2439) which I started in 2014 and run each autumn. I develop and run project tasks in the Electrotechnical Modelling course (EI2433) for students in the Electrophysics and Power programs. In the courses on High Voltage Engineering and Electrotechnical Design I previously have designed and run tasks and laboratory exercises. I usually have several MSc-thesis students active at a time, with projects on wide-ranging topics not necessarily coupled with our other projects.

Research.   Most of my work has been in high-voltage insulation-diagnostics and measurements. I supervise or co-supervise several PhD students working in diverse topics within this area and extending to more materials-oriented studies. Some idea of the subjects can be seen from the Publications. More recently I have focused on projects within power system protection, considering the apparatus, measurements, principles and electrical studies: i.e. looking from a primary system and 'applications' viewpoint. I currently have PhD projects in distribution and transmission protection topics. See the list of currently running PhD projects.

Other.   Current administrative tasks include work as deputy-director of the funding organisation SweGRIDS.


My undergraduate degree was MEng (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) at Imperial College, London; the final year was an exchange here at KTH, reading courses mainly in power-system and high-voltage and doing a final year project. This was followed by postgraduate studies in power systems at Imperial College, studying coordinated voltage control in power systems. I took the licentiate and PhD degrees here at KTH, investigating dielectric spectroscopy at low and variable frequency, and their combination with partial-discharge measurements, for condition assessment of stator insulation in large rotating machines. More on that can be found here: DS and PD project. My habilitation (docent) is also from KTH, in the broad area of "electric power", based on work mainly with high-voltage engineering.
