Reasearch / work
I focus my research on the development of spectroscopic optical methods and to use these to gather data related to different environmental problems. This includes estimating trends of various gaseous species in the large-scale atmosphere to working with air quality issues with particular focus on mapping and quantifying fugitive emissions of gases from industries and to control ship emissions. I am a national expert in measuring diffuse emission of hydrocarbons (VOC) and he works with European standardization (CEN)
