About me

I am a doctoral student in machine design at Luleå University of Technology (LTU). I finished my M.Sc. in mechanical engineering at Luleå University of Technology (LTU) in 2022, where my specialization was in machine design. At the end of my engineering education, I contributed to the development of a new lightweight mechanized planting unit together with Bracke Forest in the project course SIRIUS. It was during the project course that the interest in forestry and its development was created. Originally, I come from Hjärnarp, a village in Scania County, but I moved up to Luleå in 2017 to study.

In my spare time, I appreciate being out in nature, and downhill skiing.

About my research project

In Trees For Me I am working within work package 2 (WP2), where my goal is to research what is required to perform autonomous planting of fast-growing broadleaf trees. Thereafter, we will develop solutions and demonstrate autonomous regeneration of broadleaf trees with LTU’s Off-road vehicle platform.
