Lars Mattsson received his PhD in 2009 from Uppsala University, under the supervision of Susanne Höfner, and later (in 2010) he joined the Dark Cosmology Centre at the Niels Bohr Institute, where he stayed for three years working in close collaboration with Anja C. Andersen.

His main scientific interest is cosmic dust and his previous research has largely been about simulating dust formation together with dust-driven winds from carbon stars, and various aspects of the build-up of dust and related key-elements in galaxies. He joined the astrophysics group at Nordita in November 2013 as a postdoctoral fellow (Nordita fellow) and will work on physical modelling of cosmic-dust processing.
