About me

  • My main interest is oncogenetics. I am a specialist medical doctor in clinical genetics, focusing on hereditary cancer syndromes. After defending my thesis at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, I spent 6 months at IDIBAPS, Hospital Clinic, Barcelona, performing CRISPR-Cas9 knock-in. Since then, I have joined Felix Haglund de Flon's research group as a post-doc, evaluating whole-genome and whole-transcriptome sequencing for sarcoma diagnostics. Cancerfonden (the Swedish cancer society) has awarded me a full-time three year post-doc fellowship for this.
