My educational background is a MSc in biomedical nanotechnology (LTH) and a MSc in bioinformatics (LU). Currently, I am working as the bioinformatician for the organization PlantLink, a joint organization between Lund University and the Swedish Agricultural University in Alnarp, working to promote plant science in the southern region of Sweden.

Recently, I have mainly been involved in transcriptome projects, studying how plants and related organisms respond to different kinds of stress.

There has been a strong computational focus throughout my work and I have a strong interest for software development and automation of processing. I recently developed a pipeline for processing and visualization of metagenomic 16S rRNA data. I am also the administrator for PlantLink's Linux-based server.
