Research interests

My research, carried out within the Complex Materials group at University of Jyväskylä, Department of Physics, is focused on heterogeneous materials, theoretical and numerical modelling, complex fluid mechanics, and their applications in various industrial problems. The most important methods used include X-ray tomographic techniques, 3D image analysis and numerical simulations. The research utilizes an extensive X-ray tomography laboratory that facilitates versatile analysis of the internal microstructure of a wide range of heterogeneous materials. An important part of the research is related to developing tomographic imaging techniques and 3D image analysis methods for quantitative analysis of heterogeneous material properties and using those methods in basic and applied research related e.g. to development of novel bio-based materials. The research thus has direct and wide societal impacts as it supports conversion towards circular economy by contributing to development of new biodegradable materials.
