About me

  • I am an Associate Professor (“Docent” in the Swedish academic system) and
    group leader for the Clinical Transcriptomics research group [1] at the
    Department of Biosciences and Nutrition at Karolinska Institutet. My
    educational background is in Chemistry (Masters in 2000 at Technical
    University Berlin) and Bioinformatics (PhD in 2004 at Max-Planck-Institute in
    Golm). I spent two years as postdoc with Erik Sonnhammer at Karolinska
    Institutet 2004-2006 after which I went to work with Yoshihide Hayashizaki at
    RIKEN Yokohama. In 2007 I became Team Leader at RIKEN Omics Science Center
    (OSC) and was also leading the Bioinformatics Core Facility at RIKEN OSC as
    Facility Director since 2008. In 2012, I moved back to Karolinska Institutet
    to lead the Clinical Transcriptomics research group to improve the
    understanding of gene regulation underlying diseases.
