My research interest is heterogeneous catalysis, and in particular zeolite catalyzed hydrocarbon conversion processes. This encompasses materials synthesis and modification, advanced characterization, and measurments of catalyst perfomrance. Reaction mechanisms are of particular interest for me, and mechanistic studies are carried out using both experimental and theoretical methods. For further information, please visit the pages describing our on-going research projects. I am project leader for the TomoCAT researcher project from RCN and WP leader in the iCSI center for research based innovation.
I am currently employed as professor in the Catalysis section at the Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo. I work in close collaboration with professors Unni Olsbye, Karl Petter Lillerud, Mamou Amedjkouh, and Mats Tilset at the catalysis group, which is also part of the Center for Materials research and nanotechnology (SMN).
I currently teach:
- KJM550 - Surface and nanochemistry
- KJM5810 - Heterogeneous catalysis
- KJM1130 - Physical Chemistry 1
- KJM2500 - Syntese og karakterisering
- MENA3100 - Characterization of materials
