In his research professor Per Persson at Lund University focuses on the chemical processes at interfaces between water and mineral particles. He investigates how it affects transportation of nutriants and toxins in the environment and nature.

Per Persson has been active in the planning of the new MAX IV laboratory in Lund. Together with colleagues he will use MAX IV in a project where they study the complex network of the microbial and chemical processes which control the circulation of carbon and nitrogen compounds in the soil.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has 450 Swedish members and 175 members from other countries. The Academy was founded in 1739.
