Reasearch / work
JP has been involved in a wide range of research activities ranging from fundamental research to applied work related to air quality, climate research, and the development of efficient combustion and gasification technology. On-going innovation includes the development of new methods for fundamental studies of gas-surface interactions, development of new mass spectrometers for aerosol research and industrial applications, and the development of new instruments for alkali, tar and particle measurements in biomass combustion and gasification in collaboration with national and international partners. Current research interests are directed towards sustainability science and multi-disciplinary research activities.
