About me

Short CV

Before moving to Sweden in 2005, I studied Biochemistry at the University of Tübingen in Germany, receiving my PhD for my work on Multiplexed Immunoassays. I then joined KTH for my postdoctoral work with Prof. Mathias Uhlén and the Human Protein Atlas project.

In 2010, my lab relocated from AlbaNova to the newly established SciLifeLab. In 2011, I became Docent in Translational Proteomics, and in 2016, Associate Professor. Since 2020, I have been a Professor at KTH, where I pursue my research, supervise PhD students, and teach about proteomics.

Circulating proteins in precision medicine

Our primary research is focused on establishing and applying novel approaches for the proteomics biomarker analysis pipeline. We work on aspects of the experimental study design, considering pre-analytical variables, testing microsampling, developing novel immunoassays, and integrating data to explore emerging translational possibilities. We use these tools and the generated data to improve our understanding of human health and diseases.

Our lab is known for contributing to various innovative and interdisciplinary research projects, each focusing on different human phenotypes, such as cancer and cardiometabolic disorders.

  • Proteome analysis of body fluids in precision medicine.
  • Develop advanced high-throughput and multiplexed immunoassays.
  • Discovery and validation of circulating protein biomarkers.
