Research description

My research focus on biomarkers of pulmonary morbidity and pathophysiological mechanisms of impaired pulmonary development, with special interest in the importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids.

I work with Associate Professor Inger Kull and Associate Professor Erik Melén at  the Department of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset (KI SÖS).
