Competence and research areas

Material characterisation.
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) incl. Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD).
Sample preparation for electron microscopy.
Topography measurements using White Light Interferometry (WLI).
Optical microscopy.
Automation of equipment using simple programming in Python.

Using the above techniques, I characterise materials in several categories: Ceramics, metals, semi conducters, polymers.
