About me

I'm a PhD student at the unit of System Toxicology at the Institute of Environmental Medicine under supervision of Dr Nanna Fyhrquist. My background is in biomedicine and toxicology, and I got my BSc in Biomedicine 2017 and my MSc in Toxicology 2019, both from Karolinska Institutet. During my master I performed the studies for my master thesis at the National University of Singapore.

The research in my doctoral project aims to identify biomarkers and mechanisms for improved diagnostics and treatment of contact dermatitis, with a particular focus on the discrimination between the allergic and irritant form of the disease.
