About me

Welcome to my web page!

I am a Senior Lecturer (universitetslektor) at Lund Observatory at Lund University in Sweden. Here I work on topics such as planet formation, accretion discs, turbulence, and supercomputing.

I finished my PhD in 2007 at Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg. After that I spent a bit more than two years as a postdoc at Leiden Observatory.

I obtained my docent degree from Lund University in 2013.

Research profile

Research group

My research focuses on computer simulations of planet formation. I am especially interested in the dynamics of dust particles in turbulent protoplanetary discs. This is relevant for the formation of planetesimals and protoplanets, the first steps on the way to real planets.

You can read more about my research interests here.

I am a co-developer of the Pencil Code, a high order finite difference magnetohydrodynamics code that is highly modular and versatile.

My research group currently hosts four PhD students, a postdoctoral fellow and two senior research fellows. The group's activities are funded by Lund University, The Swedish Research Council, The European Research Council, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation, and the Royal Physiographical Society of Lund. The group's activities are part of the bigger Theoretical Astrophysics and Observational and Theoretical Astrophysics topics in Lund.

We hold computing grants at the Alarik system at Lunarc in Lund and through a European PRACE project.

Today's quote

Adil: How can you defend a country where five percent of the people
control ninety-five percent of the country?
Lisa: I'm defending a country where people can think and act and worship
any way they want!
Adil: Can not!
Lisa: Can too!
Adil: Can not!
Lisa: Can too!
Homer: Please, please kids, stop fighting. Maybe Lisa's right about
America being the land of opportunity and maybe Adil has a point about the
machinery of capitalism being oiled with the blood of the workers.
-- The Simpsons, Episode 7G13: "The Crepes of Wrath"
