Since 1989 at the department of Building Physics, Lund University
Research Research work within projects regarding solar energy, ground heat and energy use in buildings.
Contributed in projects within the Lund Group for Ground Heat Systems, with laboratory experiments and analyses of heat transfer capacities, and within the IEA (International Energy Agency), projects regarding solar energy and renovation of buildings.
Worked with assessment of potential of building integrated photovoltaics on behalf of Elforsk AB and development of tools for introduction of solar electricity within an EU-project.
Participated as Swedish representative in EU-projects regarding policy instruments for energy use in dwellings and harmonisation of an European building code.
Participated in several international conferences focusing on underground thermal energy storage and solar energy respectively.
Other international work is an EU-project regarding Local Strategies for identification and mobilization of solar potentials (POLIS).
Currently working with project regarding solar potential studies and methods of investigation of solar potential.
Teaching Accomplished courses at Lund University regarding solar energy and gives lecturers regarding use of solar energy in different courses in the Universities.
