Adj. Prof., Dr. Susanne Norgren

Sandvik and Lund University (Sweden)

Within the field of powder metallurgy, Susanne Norgren has published 75 research articles in addition to 400 published patents and patent applications. Her research spans from materials design, sintering and tribology of hard metal sand diamond materials to design of TI alloys, Co-Cr alloys and fundamental research on powder metallurgy. She has supervised 23Ph:D students from the company/university side all related to powder metallurgy. She has supervised 1.5 phd as principal supervisor and 4 as second from the university side. She did her habilitation in 2007 at KTH on hard metals including powder, compaction and sintering, phases and structures of cemented carbides, 2011-2020 she was an adjunct professor in Applied materials science at Uppsala university and 2020 she applied and qualified or the Lise Meitner adjunct professor position at Lund university. This after having gone through a full professors evaluation (again now at Lund). At Uppsala among other tasks she headed the strategic initiative on additive manufacturing -and during her management she created an international master in AM, which started this autumn, and in addition created a research centre-Add-Life focused on printed materials for the medical sector. Since 2004 to present she has been lecturing, planning and giving courses in sintering of hardmetal, wear and tribology of metal cutting tools and rock drills, and materials design on powder based materials –hard metal, diamond, titanium.
