Joel Andersson

Avdelningschef

Staff member at Division of Welding Technology.

Conducts research in engineering and technology, production technology.


My name is Joel Andersson and I’m Assoc. Prof. and Head of Division Welding Technology at University West in Trollhättan Sweden. The Division of Welding Technology at University West comprises about 30 people (including senior researchers, PhD students and engineers) and focuses on three main areas in relation to welding technology; Metallurgy, Modelling of Process physics, and Process development and control. My field of research primarily covers welding and weldability of high temperature materials, in particular the precipitation hardening Ni- and Ni-Fe based superalloys. I’m currently supervising eight PhD students in corresponding research areas.
