On 1 May 2010 appointed Head of Department for Department of Chemistry.

Department of Chemistry has a wide range of educational and research activities which are decribed at

As of September 2009 I am the Center Director of the new Center for Energy Resources Engineering (CERE). This center is a further development of Center for Phase Equilibria and Separation Processes (IVC-SEP), of which I was the Director from 1994.

CERE is involved in applied thermodynamics, colloid & interface science, geology and scientific computing. It combines a range of discipplines that are of great importance for oil, gas, carbon capture and storage (CCS), as well as geothermal energy. Further more the center is engaged in generic research in the basic disciplines. CERE has acitivities at DTU Chemistry, DTU Chemical Engineering, DTU Informatics, and DTU Environment.

My main effort is now heading the Department of Chemistry and being the director of CERE.
