I am born on the seventh of April 1970 in Borås, a town in the south-west of Sweden. I grew up and went to school in Borås, all the way up to highschool, and then went seventy kilometers westwards, to Göteborg, for my university studies. I studied physics and engineering physics at Chalmers University of Technology, and obtained a master's degree in 1995. Thereafter I spent an additional five years at Chalmers for my PhD, which I finished in 2001. After my PhD, I went down to Geneva for a postdoc for three years. Since the autumn 2004 I'm back in Sweden, working at Lund University.
In Göteborg I met my wife Helena. We married in june 2001 in the beautiful castle of Kalmar, on the swedish eastcoast. Helena, who got her highschool teachers diploma in history and religion in 2001, is presently working at a school in Lund. To the right you see a picture of us from our marriage. In March 2005 our son Ludvig was born and in October 2010 the family was considerably extended when Oscar and Beatrice were born.
Besides physics research, I am interested in travelling and reading to learn more about how and why the world works as it does. This means a rather general interest in history, politics, culture etc.
