The aim of my work is a theoretical study of the mechanical properties of neutron-irradiated tungsten alloys using molecular dynamics and ab-initio methods (DFT). Tungsten and tungsten alloys are predicted to become a key component in advanced nuclear reactors, such as fusion reactors. Studying the fracture mechanics and the embrittlement of tungsten alloys due to irradiation damages is vital when designing plasma-facing components.
My research topics include:
Density functional theory, Molecular dynamics, Tungsten alloys, Solid mechanics, Quantum mechanics, and Material science.
I joined the division of mechanics as a Ph.D. student in 2019, with Pär Olsson as main supervisor.
In 2019 I graduated from Lunds University with an M.Sc. in Nanophysics. My thesis work was done as a collaboration between Nanolund and Division of Mechanics and is titled: “Mechanical properties of SiC nanowires with polytypes”.
In 2016 I graduated from the University of Copenhagen with a B.Sc. in Physics. My thesis work was done at the center for quantum devices (QDev) and is titled: "Fabrication and Electrical Characterization of Semiconductor Nanowire Devices".
