About me

PhD Project: Functionalization of biobased nanomaterials for medical use.

Main Supervisor: Prof. Daniel Söderberg

Co-Supervisor: Dr. Josefin Illergård 

Planned Year of Defense: 2026

Research Interests: 

I enjoy working in challenging and interdisciplinary translational research in the field of medical sciences and technology.  The versatility and immense potential of biomaterials has always fascinated me, especially for applications in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, and controlled drug release.

During my doctoral studies here at KTH, I am working on functionalizing cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) which is the world's strongest biomaterial, for using it in various medical applciations.
