About me

  • Associate Professor in Environmental Medicine at Karolinska Institutet,
    Institute of Environmental Medicine, Unit of Metals and Health.
    PhD in Medical Science, Karolinska Institutet, 2009.
    MSc in Toxicology, Karolinska Institutet, 2004.


  • The overall aim of the research in my research group is to increase the
    knowledge about how early-life exposure to environmental pollutants,
    especially metals, can affect child health and development. We
    also study the role of essential trace elements and other nutrients (e.g.
    selenium and iodine) and whether interactions may occur with different toxic
    elements. This is achieved by combining epidemiological- and mechanistic
    studies within several different mother-child cohorts. Metals and other trace
    elements are mainly measured using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass
    Spectrometry (ICP-MS), which enables high-throughput analyses of multiple
    elements in the low-dose range. Effect biomarkers are measured with several
    different molecular techniques.
