About me

  • Group leader and researcher at the Institute of Environmental Medicine,
    Karolinska Institutet.
    I am a biologist, who graduated with a major in animal physiology and
    neurosciences. Later on my focus has shifted to the immune system, epithelial
    barrier biology and the role of host-microbe interplay in the tuning of host
    immune responses to external exposures and mechanisms underlying immune
    tolerance and susceptibility to chronic inflammatory disease.

  • My research team explores the impact of modern lifestyle on immune tolerance
    and the risk of developing chronic inflammatory disease, such as allergies.
    I lead a project which identifies biomarkers to discriminate between irritant
    and allergic contact dermatitis for the purpose of developing improved


  • I am yearly involved in teaching basic immunology, immune toxicology,
    bacteriology and epithelial barrier biology at Karolinska Institutet and at
    the University of Helsinki.
