Dr. Rosen earned his Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden in 2016. His thesis topic was on the dynamics of non-spherical macro- and nanoparticles in fluid flows related to production of biobased materials. The main current research topics include the production of hollow fibers from nanocellulose as well as experimental characterization of dispersed cellulose nanofibrils using X-ray scattering techniques.
