Pär Johannesson works as senior researcher within mechanical reliability, fatigue and load analysis. He has more than 20 years of experience within research and development in fatigue and load analysis with a focus on engineering statistics and reliability in industrial applications.

Pär did a PhD in mathematical statistics at Lund Institute of Technology, with a thesis on statistical load analysis
for fatigue. He had a PostDoc in mathematical statistics, at Chalmers University of Technology and PSA Peugeot Citroën in France, and is docent in mathematical statistics at Chalmers.

He has published more than 20 papers in international journals, and is a co-editor of the handbook "Guide to Load Analysis for Durability in Vehicle Engineering".
