My carrier has been within the area of physics research. I first held a professor´s chair at the Swedish National Research Council and later at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.  My subject was “The electronic structure of condensed matter”. The research was mainly experimental although I also made contributions in computational physics. When I formally retired in 2006 I switched the research area to the understanding of science.  I now work full time with scientists, the public, school children and teachers. In particular I run a science café (www.cafealar.se). I also started a interdiciplinary forum for applied neuroscience (www.neuroforum.se)

Below follows  shortly some documentation of my merits. You are most welcome to contact me for further information.
