Research

  • I am Associate Professor (Docent) and Research Group Leader at the Unit of Environmental Epidemiology, Institute of Environmental Medicine, KI. My research has primarily focused on effects of ambient air pollution on the development of asthma and allergy in children and adolescents. Much of my work is based on the ongoing Swedish birth cohort BAMSE (https://ki.se/en/imm/bamse-project), which has a strong focus on
    epidemiology, environmental exposures and genomics, EMIL cohort (https://ki.se/imm/valkommen-till-emil), along with extensive international collaborations (e.g. through the ESCAPE, PACE, MeDALL, EXPANSE consortia).
    Current projects involve large-scale studies of biomarkers, including epigenetic, transcriptomic, inflammatory and metabolomic, and interactions
    with various environmental factors (e.g., ambient air pollution, transportation noise, residential greenness) in context of respiratory disorders.
