Academic staff

Anders Ahlberg

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.

Ivar Björnsson

I am a senior lecturer and researcher at the Division of Structural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Lund University. I teach varying courses concerning the design and assessment of structures such as buildings and bridges. In my research I have primarily focused on structural safety and reliability, probabilistic risk assessment and decision/information analysis of these types of structures (both new and existing). As a teacher I am engaged in active learning and in establishing a clear link between how structures behave in reality and the theories/methods we use assessing this. Since 2024, I have the role of faculty coordinator at LTH (25%) and act as a link between the faculty (LTH) and Unit of Educational Services (EFU, where the focus is on transforming education in a digital world. To strengthen collaboration between the pedagogic units, I have offices at both CEE and EFU. Digital tools have the potential to improve our teaching and students learning; however, it is critical that we adopt a learning focused approach to be successful.

I am senior lecturer and associate professor in food microbiology and also programme director for the Master's Programme in Pharmaceutical Technology. I work mainly at Applied Microbiology at the Department of Chemistry, but also at Packaging Logistics at the Department of Design Sciences. I teach future biotechnology, chemical and environmental engineers and master students from several different programmes. At Packaging Logistics, I serve as a programme co-coordinator for the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree “Food Innovation and Product Design” (FIPDes). The overall focus in my research is food safety and foodborne microbial virulence: in other words, to understand how different food poisoning pathogens survive, grow and produce toxins in different foods, food processing environments, packaging and storage conditions. I hold the title Excellent Teaching Practitioner/ETP and I am regularly an external evaluator in the assessment of teaching skills nationally. Connecting our teaching at LTH to the students' future professional role is something I am particularly passionate about. At CEE, I am mainly involved in the course on developing and leading courses as well as in LTH's pedagogical academy (ETP).

Jesper Samuelsson

During the autumn of 2023 and the beginning of 2024, I will as a student assistant run a project on how higher education pedagogy affects attendance in classroom teaching. In parallel, I am studying for a Master's degree in environmental engineering with a specialisation in energy systems. During my studies, I have, for example, been involved in my study council, been chairman of the study council, sabbatical officer at Teknologkåren as Head of Internal Educational Affairs, student representative in the Education board at LTH and other student representation assignments in undergraduate education at LTH, LU and for SFS.

My main interests lie in evaluating and identifying parts of the education that particularly contribute to high or low education quality and to concretise proposals for measures that increase the students' commitment and thus their learning in the respective educational content. My goal is that all students and teachers at LTH will be met with engagement to learning, innovation and creativity in all educational environments.


Johan Mauritsson

Professor in atomic physics and since 2023 one of two programme managers for the LTH Career Academy. Until 2023, I have sat on the Career Board and since 2022 I am also a member of LTH's Management Group for Basic Education with a special responsibility for lifelong learning. My research concerns ultrashort laser pulses that we create in the extreme ultraviolet range using high-power lasers. These pulses are used to study how electrons move in atoms and molecules. I enjoy popularising physics and have helped with LTH's Christmas calendar for several years, and I sit on the editorial board of Fysikaktuellt.

Mirjam Glessmer

I am a senoir lecturer and 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

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.
