See relations at Aarhus University


I am employed as an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, as part of the air quality group. My primary function is research, but I also do knowledge exchange with Danish authorities just as I teach at the university. In my research, I work with several companies working operating in my field of research. Currently, I am an Industrial post doc at Kongskilde Maskinfabrik in Sorø, in a project supported by the National Advanced Technology Foundation.

Research area

  • Ammonia and odour emissions following field application of animal manure
  • Numerical modelling of soil strength and soil movement during soil injection of animal manure /soil tillage
  • Development of low-emission techniques for manure spreading
  • Acidification and soil injection of animal manure and succeeding ammonia and odour emissions


  • Methods for determination of ammonia emission in the field
  • Technologies for the reduction of ammonia, odour and greenhouse gas emissions associated with manure spreading
  • Serve as academic advisor for undergraduate, master and PhD students

Knowledge exchange

  • Member of  MELT (Danish Environmental Protection Agency expert panel for assessment of environmental technologies in the Agro-Business) responsible for field application of animal manure
  • Expert on the field: gas emissions related to manure spreading
