My research revolves around the atomic structure and spectroscopy of free atoms. I am interested in spectroscopy of astronomical objects, particularly emission lines and infrared spectroscopy of stars, and laboratory measurements to interpret astronomical spectra. The new field of kilonovae, the ejecta from merging neutron stars, is a new field where infrared atomic data is needed. Experiments are performed in our Edlén laboratory and at the national facility DESIREE.

Performance lecture 'Spectacular Spectra from Space' at Bastionen.
