I am passionate about developing novel membranes for separation and purification applications. In my lab (i.e. Nordic Membrane Lab) we synthesize and fabricate new membranes for gas separation (CO2 separation, olefin/paraffin separation, H2 separation, N2 separation, O2 separation), energy applications (Blue energy harvesting, energy storage in flow batteries), and liquid separation (Membrane distillation, membrane crystallizer, MF/UF/NF/RO).
