Affiliated to research
I am a researcher in the Rare Diseases research group at the Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, Karolinska Institutet. Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Science For Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab), Stockholm. I mainly work with whole-genome sequencing of patients with previously unknown rare diseases. My research interest is the identification of novel disease genes and variants to understand the mechanisms behind the disease of interest. To achieve this goal, I use massively parallel sequencing techniques and bioinformatics. Additional to my research activities, I involve in teaching both at second and third cycles of education. I am course leader for Genetics (5MT009, 5 ECTS) course in master’s programme for Molecular Techniques in Life Science and one of the organisers of doctoral course "Rare Disease Genomics". I am also co-supervisor of three PhD students. Apart from my research and teaching activities, I am responsible for organizing of a variety of formal and informal scientific activities in our unit and the postdoc club at BioClinicum.
