Competence and research areas

I work with corrosion and corrosion protection, coating technology in particular. This includes organic coatings (paint), metallic coatings, and conversion coatings, focusing on degradation, durability and maintenance. I also work with corrosion on passive materials, like corrosion resistant alloys and aluminium.
