Alexander Wahlberg

Project leader RISE Bioeconomy (Production & Processes)

The Chewbacca of RISE

Alex is a bearded creature with the impressing height of 178 cm, who originates from the planet Skellefteå. Because of that he sometimes can be experienced as “hard” to understand because of his misfortunate animal screams and growls.
He is one of few who survived the dangerous and bloody wars of becoming both an engineer (M.Sc.) and a teacher (M.S.Ed.) at KTH during the period 2007-2012.
His latest prominent was as a project leader / plant engineer working with road constructions, and especially with asphalt pavements (aka “the dark force”) for five years.
Now Alex has joined the rebels at the Bioeconomy section of RISE (Production and processes) and is located both in Skellefteå and Umeå. Currently he works with three EU Horizon 2020 projects (Mobile flip, SaltGae and Karma) where he does calculations, business plans and also the technical and economical assessment.
Alex is always curious and likes to read and learn about human behaviour on his spare time. Since he both like sports and has the black belt of badminton, he is quite dangerous as well. According to himself he is quite extreme as a person, but that is open for discussion 😉

May the forest be with you!
