Dr Sunden was one of the inventors of the Baltic Heat Transfer Conference series. Dr Sunden is sub-contractor of a patent on metallic catalytic converters. He acts also as consultant to some companies. 
The research has resulted in contributions to the understanding of mechanisms of the heat transfer and momentum transport in complex geometries (e.g., compact heat exchangers, gas turbine cooling, fuel cells), enhancement of heat transfer, improvement and development of computational methods, development of CFD and computer codes forheat exchangers.
