Academic interests

My research focuses on different aspects of mineralogy. From how minerals are formed, over their internal structure to their physical properties, and how these can be used to design new materials. I am especially interested int he mineralogy of alkaline complexes due to their unique geochemistry and potential as REE resources. My fieldwork is primarily carried out on the alkaline complexes in South Greenland, Larvik area in Norway and North America.
