Om mig

  • My major research interest has always been centered around the development 

  • and function of neural cell types. During my PhD at the Department of Cell
    and Molecular Biology at KI, I studied transcriptional determinants of
    specific neuronal identities including the dopaminergic and serotonergic
    neurons of the brain. I thereafter transitioned my research focus to the
    “Brain in the gut” – the Enteric Nervous System, during a postdoc at
    National Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill, London, UK. Since 2013,
    I have led my own research group at the Department of Medical Biochemistry
    and Biophysics./

    1999-2000 ERASMUS exchange year, University of Manchester, UK

    2009-2010 Postdoc, National Institute for Medical Research
  • Mill Hill,
    London, UK


  • My research team focuses on neural cell diversity in the Enteric Nervous 

  • System (ENS). By determining the variety of ENS cell subtypes, the 

  • functions they normally serve and their developmental specification we aim to
    improve diagnostic and therapeutic principles for gut disorders. The lab
    addresses these basic but critical questions by transcriptome analysis
    coupled with viral-based activity/gene manipulations using the mouse model.
