About me

I am employed as Chief Physicist at Stockholm South General Hospital  in Stockholm, Sweden (www.sodersjukhuset.se ). I am also a researcher at the Department of Clinical Science and Education at Karolinska Institutet. My office is located at the radiotherapy department at the Stockholm South General Hospital.

Research description

Currently, I am the main supervisor of two Ph.D. Students Gracinda Mondlane and Toshiro Tsobouchi . They are both studying how to use ion-beam therapy more efficiently by using new beam-scanning teachniques. Gracinda is studing different approaches to treat moving targets in the gastro-intestinal tract. Toshiro is studying how carbon-ion beam grids can be used to reduce the side effects after the treatment of deep-seated, solid tumors. We are also collaborating with the future users of the Skandion proton-therapy clinic in Uppsala in different clinical projects.

I was earlier a co-supervisor of Danielle Anderson, a PhD student at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. She prepared a thesis on microbeam radiation therapy.

I am interested and involved in research related to applications of synchrotron radiation in medicine, in particular radiation therapy. I am a member of management committee for a EU-COST project called SYRA3 COST Action TD1205 "Innovative Methods in Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery  using Synchrotron Radiation". https://www.syra3.eu/
