Teaching

A major form of pedagogical activity is the instruction of Doctoral, Licentiate, Master's, and Bachelor's theses in Process Metallurgy. The instructed theses cover a broad range of topics ranging from ironmaking via meltshop to hot rolling. Alongside research, I have assisted in courses on Process Metallurgy and Industrial Engineering at University of Oulu.
