About me

I am a biträdande lektor (assistant professor) at Michael Uhlin's group (CLINTEC, Huddinge campus). My main research interests are i) T cell based immunotherapy and ii) gamma-delta (γδ) T cells and the involvement of their different subsets in the clinical setting of cancer and infections.

My second focus is the sustainable development of research and diagnosis (mainly immunology but not exclusively) in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs).
