About me

  • PhD, Senior Scientist
    Project manager in the VIVAC (Vaccines and Immunotherapies against Viruses
    And Cancer) research group
    Member of the Work Environment Committee ANA Futura
    I have a M.Sc. in molecular cell biology form Södertörn University in 2003.
    My PhD was obtained from Karolinska Instutitet in 2007 working on the
    development of a therapeutic vaccine for treatment of chronic hepatitis C
    virus infection. After my PhD I worked for a couple of years as a post doc at
    a research company developing vaccine adjuvants. Back at KI in 2009 as
    assistant professor I continued working on vaccine development now as
    treatment for chronic hepatitis B virus infection. In 2015 I joined GE
    Healthcare (now Cytiva) exploring scalable production processes for proteins
    and cell based vaccines. Since 2018 I am back at KI as project manager in the
    VIVAC research group.


  • My research focus on development of vaccines against Crimean Congo
    Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF), SARS-CoV-2 and hepatitis B and D virus.
