Research Description

Dr Persson’s broader research interests are in computational mechanics where he aims at solving problems within the field of civil engineering. He currently focuses on developing computational methods and strategies with applications to predicting and reducing vibrations in our built environment with a focus on timber constructions. The research enables sustainable densified urban areas to be developed. Other research areas of interest are fluid-structure interaction problems, such as vibrating water-pipe systems, development of time-efficient numerical model, and structural design of complex wind turbine blades.

Dr Persson has been a visiting assistant professor at The University of Texas at Austin, in 2017, where he visited Dr Kallivokas and Dr Manuel. Moreover, he is working as a vibration specialist at the consultant engineering firm Sweco AB.
