Personal profile


Technical project manager for the McStas project which is currently applied in simulation of neutron scattering instruments for the future ESS in Lund, Sweden. McStas is  world leading in simulation of instrumentation for neutron scattering and virtual neutron scattering experiments. Participating instituttes are DTUNBIILL and PSI.

McStas is extensively used in the design of future instruments for the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, and I work closely with colleagues from the ESS Data Management and Software Center (DMSC).

Also involved in McXtrace which is an X-ray equivalent of McStas. Participating partners are DTUNBI at KULife at KUESRF and SAXSLAB

My position is affiliated with the NEXMAP section within DTU Physics. I am also the local representative of Danish Association of Masters and PhDs among DTU Physics employees at Risø Campus.
