I am an architect SAR/MSA with a PhD in Architecture, attached as docent to the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. My speciality is colour in its architectural and spatial context. See short CV

In my  research I have dealt with many different aspects of colour such as:
- colour perception on facades
- architectural colour from a historical viewpoint, in Sweden and Roman Pompeii
- the spatial interaction of colour and light.
See list of publications in other languages than Swedish.

I have written and edited several books on colour in architecture – most of them only in Swedish. See list of books.

I give lectures and courses in Swedish and English and have participated in many international conferences. At the congresses of the AIC (International Colour Association) in Granada 2005 and Sydney 2009, I was an invited speaker. For the AIC conference in Stockholm 2008, I was chair of the program and scientific committee.

My work as a colour consultant includes colour selections for the large paint manufacturer Alcro, who have also produced a film where I present my research on facade colours.
