Karin Larsson is a Professor in Inorganic Chemistry at the Dept. of Chemistry-Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University, Sweden, and Guest Professor at the University of Science and Technology Liaoning, China. In addition, Karin Larsson is elected member of IVA (Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences), division V (Mining and Materials;Vice-Chair).
Prof. Karin Larsson is today the head of the Theoretical Materials Chemistry Group at the Div. of Inorganic Chemistry, Dept. of Chemistry-Ångström laboratory. The scientific focus is on interpretation, understanding and prediction of the following processes/properties for both solid/gas interfaces, as well as for solid/liquid interfaces; i) CVD growth (e.g. diamond, BN, and graphene), iii) interfacial processes for renewable energy applications (e.g. electrochemical processes), and iv) bio-functionalization of surfaces (e.g. bone regeneration).
