I am a researcher and teacher at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) at Karolinska Institutet. I received by Master's degree in Toxicology from KI in 2006 and my PhD degree at KI in 2013. I have been a postdoc at Stockholm University and KI and since 2018 I am an Assistant Professor at IMM.
My research is in the area of regulatory toxicology, with a focus on minimizing risks to human health from endocrine disrupting chemicals and chemical mixtures. I have a specific interest in methodologies that promote structure and transparency in health risk assessment of chemicals, such as systematic review and weight of evidence evaluation methodologies and adverse outcome pathways (AOP). I am one of the initiators and developers of the Science in Risk Assessment and Policy (SciRAP) web-based platform, which provides criteria and tools for the evaluation of individual toxicity and ecotoxicity studies for use in hazard and risk assessment of chemicals. Apart from my research activities, I am also involved in various expert assignments at IMM to support national and international agencies and organisations in the area of hazard and risk assessment.
I teach at Karolinska Institutet and other universities and institutions on the topics of endocrine disrupting chemicals and risk assessment methodologies. I am especially involved with the Masters Program in Toxicology at Karolinska Institutet, where I am responsible for the course in Health Risk Assessment. I am also involved in organizing courses in health risk assessment and assessment of endocrine disruptors at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
