He performed basic military service at Eksjö and participated in research and experiments in particle physics and particle acceleration at the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) and the Large Electron-Positron Storage Ring (LEP).[1]

From November 1990 to June 1992, with the support of the Manne Siegbahn Institute, research was carried out in the field of Neutrino Astronomy Research.

After moving to Jönköping in 1992, he devoted himself to linguistics. His book Origins of Language, Constraints of Hypotheses, and Convergence Evidence in Language and Communication Studies, published in 2005, has been reviewed by the Journal of Linguistics and by American scientists.[2][3][4]
