In 2011, she was the Lise Meitner Professor and was then active at the Department of Measurement Technology and Industrial Electrical Engineering (now the Department of Biomedical Engineering). Since then, she has continued to teach in the course Lab-on-a-chip in biomedical applications.

Björn Liljeqvist

Björn Liljeqvist is a civil engineer who has made a name for himself as a lecturer and author on study techniques. And it is precisely thanks to his contributions in study techniques that he is now appointed an honorary doctor. He is also the chairman of Mensa International.

According to LTH's study counselor, who nominated him, he has had a positive impact on LTH's engineering students. For more than ten years, Björn Liljeqvist has regularly lectured on study techniques for students and consistently received positive evaluations. His efforts have contributed to increased independence and confidence among students.

Proof of great appreciation

The doctoral award ceremony is the major annual academic ceremony at which the University's faculties award and honour those who have completed a doctorate degree during the year. At the same time, other prominent individuals who are appointed honorary doctors are honoured. The new doctors are honoured with external signs of the doctoral dignity: diploma, ring, hat or laurel wreath – the insignia of the doctorate.

Through honorary doctoral appointments, LTH wants to strengthen LTH as a prominent university that explores and creates – to benefit the world. To be awarded an honorary doctorate from LTH is proof of great appreciation. It is not possible to be conferred an honorary doctorate from LTH if you already have a doctorate from Lund University.
