About me

  • Dennis Lindqvist has a degree in chemical engineering (with focus on
    analytical chemistry) from Uppsala University and a Ph.D. in environmental
    chemistry from Stockholm University. He works as a researcher and divides his
    time between his home university Stockholm University (Department of
    environmental Science) and Karolinska Institute (Institute of environmental
    medicine) where he is affiliated.

Research

  • My research is largely focused on the health of wildlife in the Baltic Sea,
    particularly that of fish. I have a specific interest in phytochemicals of
    environmental concern in the Baltic Sea, both the good, such as vitamins
    (specifically thiamine), and the bad, such as algae toxins (particularly
    hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers). I develop analytical methods,
    study transport and transformation of chemicals in nature, conduct exposure
    monitoring, and toxicity testing of chemicals.
    My current research at KI is related to mixture toxicity (of both natural and
    anthropogenic compounds) using zebrafish embryo models. The project is
    focused on effects on the immune system with the goal to further our
    understanding of how exposure to chemical mixtures can adversely affect the
    immune system of fish in Baltic Sea.
