I am a postdoctoral researcher in the groups of Hans Grönlund and Tomas Olsson at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience, and my research focusses on the immunology of multiple sclerosis.

Om mig

My work investigates how adaptive immune responses to common viruses or autoantigens can damage the central nervous system in neurological autoimmune diseases. By using a variety of molecular and immunological techniques, we aim to characterise autoreactive responses in depth, with the aim to provide better understanding of how disease occurs and ultimately provide targets for development of future therapies.
