Mathias Boström

Dr Mathias Boström joined Prof. Clas Persson’s team at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm (Sweden) in August 2012. He worked (from May 2013 to April 2017) part time at University of Oslo (UiO). He is now a visiting researcher at UiO, and employed part time at NTNU in Trondheim (from September 2016 to December 2018). Dr Mathias Boström is focused on challenging, and conceptually important, problems mainly in theoretical physics, colloid chemistry, and nanobiotechnology. 

 

The focus from autumn 2016 is on the Norweigan FRINATEK project "Casimir effect and van der Waals forces in multilayer systems" funded between 2016 and 2019. Project Manager and WP1 leader for the project is Prof. Iver Brevik (NTNU), WP2 leader Prof. Clas Persson (UiO). Co-applicants where Dr Mathias Boström (UiO+NTNU), Prof. Johan Hoye (NTNU), Prof. Stefan Buhmann (Germany), Prof. Kimball Milton (USA), Prof. Barry W. Ninham (Australia), Dr Oleksandr I. Malyi (Singapore), Dr Kristian Berland (UiO), Dr Prachi Parashar (USA), Dr K. V. Shajesh (USA), Dr. Drew F. Parsons (Australia), Dr Eduardo Lima (Brazil).

 

Dr Boström obtained his PhD from Linköpings Universitet (October 1996-June 2000) on Casimir and Casimir-Polder interactions. He demonstrated that previous calculations did not include in a correct way dissipation and thermal effects, and hence resulted in incorrect results. As post doc at the Australian National University, and later as Assistant Professor at Linköpings Universitet, he investigated theoretically the way proteins, micelles, polyelectrolytes and membranes behave in mixed electrolyte solutions. Based on this work he was later employed as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Regensburg, as visiting researcher at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and as visiting Professor at University of Cagliari. Dr Boström has collaborated with researchers from many countries (and research fields) including from Sweden, Norway, Australia, China, India, Italy, Germany, France, USA, and Brazil.

 

Dr Mathias Boström has a h-index of 28 and 98 publications (ISI web of science number of citations on the 23-11-2016 from all databases). Out of these the top 3 papers have 267, 217 and 215 citations. Besides these about 10 more manuscripts are work in progress.

Dr Boström is co-advisor for the following PhD student(s):

Ms Priyadarshini Thiyam  started as PhD student in September 2013 with Prof. Clas Persson and Dr Mathias Boström at Dept of Materials Science and Engineering, Royal Insitute of Technology, in Stockholm (Sweden). Priyadarshini was up to 2016 funded by a three year Erasmus Mundus India4EU fellowship (supported by the European Union). Priyadarshini has been most productive and taken part in 12 articles, many as first author and corresponding author. She has also taken part in different summer schools including one  on "Geometry and Topology of Liquid Crystals and Related Ordered Materials", held at the Niels Bohr Institute. University of Copenhagen, from August 19-23, 2013. She presented a talk at our STINT funded workshop in January 2014 and have participated in several conferences and international meetings.For instance she gave an oral presentation at the "XVth International Conference on Surface Forces” in Russia. She also participated (with posters) at Casimir related workshops in France (Spring 2014 supported by the Julian Schwinger Foundation) and Hong Kong (2016), PIERS conference in Prague (2015) and in catalytic symposium in Oslo (June 2014). From September 2016 she is visiting University of Oslo with the aim that she will complete her PhD at KTH in 2017.

 

Former student:

Former co-advisor for Dr Vivianne Deniz who received her PhD from the Australian National University during 2014

 

Former co-advisor for Dr. Maofeng Dou (from December 2012 until 22 May 2015) at the Dept of Materials Science and Engineering, Royal Insitute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Prof. Clas Persson was supervisor for Dr Maofeng Dou. Maofeng has exploited atomic scale density functional theory to understand the properties of for example doped oxide materials. During his PhD he received a prestigious stipend from the European Science Foundation to visit Prof. Iver Brevik’s group at NTNU (Trondheim, Norway). During this visit he learned how to use Lifshitz formalism to study quantum levitation and related effects.  It has been a privilege to work with Maofeng. He is a team player and has proved that he is an inspired researcher that can stand on his own.
