Martin Månsson is an experimental physicist with a PhD in materials physics from KTH in Stockholm with a thesis focusing on angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) investigations of correlated electron systems, e.g. high-temperature superconductors (HTSC). Subsequently he spent seven years in Switzerland as a postdoc and scientist at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), ETH Zurich and EPF Lausanne. Here he focused on studying energy materials and quantum magnets using neutron scattering and muon spin rotation/relaxation (m+SR) techniques. Since 2015 he has returned to Stockholm and KTH where he is currently holding an Asst. Professor position. Here he is building up a new research group and is also responsible for developing a KTH as well as national research/educational strategy for neutron scattering. The latter is directly related to the current investment, development and construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Sweden. Dr. Månsson is currently the vice president for the International Society for m+SR Spectroscopy (ISMS) and sits on the board for the Swedish Neutron Scattering Society (SNSS). His research is funded by the Swedish Research Council (VR) as well as the European Commission.
