Academic staff

Anders Ahlberg, senior lecturer

I am a senior lecturer, associate professor (docent) and Excellent Teaching Practitioner/ETP at CEE. I engage in educational development, mainly in support of doctoral education and supervision. This includes provision of a faculty-wide PhD course programme, supervision training for current and future professors, and an active role as faculty study director at the Research Programmes Board of LTH. My strategy is to create local educational knowledge that informs graduate school decision - and policy making. I also have a background as an earth scientist, doing research, teaching and supervision for more than two decades. It is therefore probably not surprising that my main educational interests include field-based learning, lab learning and other authentic active learning activities. Aside my work at LTH, I am enrolled as an associate professor in iEarth, a Norwegian academic consortium that researches and develops Earth Science education.

Lydia Carling, student assistant

I am currently studying my second-to-last year at the environmental engineering programme. For my work at CEE,
I am conducting a study regarding the sustainability education at the engineering programmes at LTH. For all engineering programmes, there is a requirement to study at least 6 credits sustainability. I am interested in the experience the students taking these courses have, both in connection to their education as a whole, and how the course and its content can come to be useful in the students' future working life. 

My interest for education and learning started already as a youth in the Swedish Scouts, where I got experience of teamwork and took part in courses on leadership, teaching, and group management. Nowadays, I put some of my spare time towards education monitoring and development via the study council at my programme. 


Michael Cimbritz, senior lecturer

I am a senior lecturer and associate professor in Water and Environmental Engineering and also study director for the research education at the department of Chemical Engineering. My research is about removal of organic micropollutants, for example pharmaceutical residues, in wastewater. I have a great interest in research supervision and in writing (in Swedish) of engineers and researchers. At CEE, I work with higher education pedagogical education and issues related to postgraduate education.

Mirjam Glessmer, senior lecturer

I joined LTH as an academic developer in January 2022. My background is in physical oceanography, but for the last decade I’ve worked in academic development and science communication in Germany and Norway. I am very interested in "co-creation", i.e. involving students in developing their education, and helping students feel safe and that they belong at university. I hold an adjunct associate professorship at the University of Bergen where we are introducing co-creation in teaching while at the same time researching it. My pet projects revolve around helping students see disciplinary content in their everyday lives: #KitchenOceanography (exploring ocean physics with household items) and #WaveWatching (discovering physics everywhere, from your sink, a puddle in the street, the ocean). I document some of my thoughts on learning and teaching – especially related to subjects that deal with water, or teaching outdoors or in labs – on my personal blog as well as on Twitter. On Instagram, you can follow my daily wave watching practice. I look forward to connecting with you!

Torgny Roxå, senior lecturer

I have been involved in academic development for more than 30 years. I teach pedagogical courses for academic teachers, I consult leaders and teachers, and I supervise doctoral students. My research deals mainly with development of teaching within higher education organisations. Hereby, the focus is on the meso level, that is, on workgroups, disciplinary communities, and departments. The idea is that through sociocultural processes these groups of academics stabilise the organisations and makes them resilient, with positive as well as negative implications. I also engage in the development of the profession, academic development, both nationally and internationally. Over the years I have been an external examiner at Oxford University and a visiting professor at Ulster University and at McMaster University. I also served for three years as vice president within the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

Vera Söderström, student assistant

Parallel to my studies in environmental engineering, I work as an assistant at CEE. Throughout this academic year, I will carry out a study about the “breakpoint” when students go from identifying solely as being an engineering student, into also identifying themselves as a future professional engineer. My focus will be on examining what it is that the students actually are experiencing during this transition. In my previous years at LTH, I have been involved in the student council and the board at my guild, as well as being a student representative at the programme committee.
