About me

  • Associate professor (docent) and research group leader at the Immunology and
    Allergy Unit, Department of Medicine, Solna.
    I did my undergraduate studies (MSc) in Biology at Uppsala universitet. I
    received my PhD in Experimental Medicine from Karolinska Institutet (Center
    of Infectious Medicine) in 2004 and then did postdoctoral training at Yale
    University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA and Genentech, Inc., South
    San Francisco, CA, USA. I returned to Karolinska Institutet in 2010 as
    assistant professor supported by a Marie Curie/Vinnmer fellowship from
    Vinnova and a research grant for young investigators from the Swedish
    Research Council. Since 2014 I am a research group leader at the Department
    of Medicine Solna. I have received support from Karolinska Institutet
    including a salary grant as part of the KI career ladder. I currently hold a
    senior research position funded by the Swedish Heart and Lung Foundation.

Research

  • The research in my group is focused on immune cells, in particular dendritic
    cells and monocytes and their role in infection and inflammation of the
    respiratory system in humans.
