About me

  • I have a strong research interest in adaptive immunity, autoantibodies, and
    autoreactive B cells in health and disease. The translational research
    laboratory is located at the Center for Molecular Medicine and we work in
    close collaboration with the Rheumatology Clinic at Karolinska University
    Hospital. I have a PhD in biotechnology and a background in protein
    engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm, Sweden) and
    pursued my interests in immunology, antibody engineering, and B cell biology
    in rheumatic disease in San Diego (UCSD) and New York (NYU School of
    Medicine) as a postdoctoral researcher and junior faculty 2008-2014. At KI,
    my research team is focusing on understanding the role of autoantibodies and
    autoreactive B cells in rheumatic diseases using approaches including
    generation of human monoclonal autoantibodies for functional in vitro and in
    vivo studies, immunoglobulin repertoire studies, and B cell investigations.
