Hello, my name is Richard and I am a lab technician. My educational background is Botany and Ecology, and in recent years I specialized in Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry. 

Research projects


I am involved in many different research projects . My current tasks are: 

  • Analysing delta 15N and 13C of plant- and soil samples with a CE- NC2500 elemental analyser coupled to a Finnigan Delta Plus IRMS with ConFlo II.
  • Making PLS models for the prediction of f.e total N and lignin using FT-IR ATR spectroscopy.
  • Participant in the LOGLIFE tree cemetery experiment where I am responsible for anysis of tree chemical traits, isotopic analysis, database management and coordination of fieldwork.
  • Fieldwork at Abisko research station in the north of Sweden https://polar.se/en/research-in-abisko/  . Here we have a global warming experiment on a sub-arctic bog near lake Tornetrask. 
  • Performing various other analyses, like phenolics, C/N ratios of plant and soil samples.
  • Maintaining the research facility for doing flammability experiments with different litter types from the arctic tundra and the Netherlands. 
  • Instructing PhD students, students and foreign guests.
