About me

I am Assistant Professor in toxicology at the Institute of Environmental Medicine. My research is focused on understanding mechanisms of particle toxicity. We have ongoing projects on the following types of particles:

  • Welding particles
  • Particles generated from combustion of renewable fuels such as biodiesel
  • Particles generated from combustion of solid fuels of relevance for sub-Saharan Africa
  • Fire emission particles from new ‘green’ materials

In my research I combine in vitro models, bioinformatics and molecular epidemiology approaches.

I am also a teacher, tutor and course leader within the Master's Programme in Toxicology, and union representative (Saco-S) at IMM.
