Senior Lecturer, also at Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE)
Jenny Rissler, Associate Professor at the division of Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology at Lund University, Faculty of Engineering. She has a Master’s degree in Physics (2000) and a PhD in Aerosol Science, Physics, on the hygroscopic growth of aerosol particles emitted from biomass burning and combustion (2005). After her PhD she worked with industrial R&D; with emission control and within respiratory drug delivery. Apart from her years in industry, she has been on research exchanges with university of Copenhagen and at MAXIV, Lund.
Jenny’s main research area is within airborne particles/aerosols. In addition to characterizing emissions and exposure (physical and chemical), her research has been focused on bridging the gap between emission, exposure and health effects of airborne particles – and specifically on how particles are deposited in our lungs, which is the critical link between exposure and the health effects of the particles. In this area, one focus has been on understanding the lung deposition and exposure of sensitive groups such as children.
The last 12 years she has also been active in NanoSafety and the risks related to the introduction of nanomaterials on the market, where she has been working with understanding emissions and risks related to the disposal and recycling of nano-containing materials after the product’s end-of-life. She is currently a member of the Panel of Experts in SweNanoSafe (a national platform for NanoSafety).
In her research she has actively made use of high resolved X-ray spectroscopy methods such as XPS (X-ray Photoelectron spectroscopy) and XAS (X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy), coupling with her role at RISE working with industrial applications of synchrotron based analysis tools.
