I'm an associate senior lecturer in bioinformatics at the University of Skövde, Sweden, and part of the Translational Bioinformatics research group. I obtained a MSc degree in Molecular Biology at University of Skövde 2008 and my PhD degree in Medical Science at Örebro University in 2016. During my PhD I worked on developing bioinformatics tools for discovery of biomarkers, including a machine learning algorithm and a database for miRNAs in endometrial cancer. After I obtained my PhD degree I became post doc in bioinformatics at University of Skövde and worked on analysis of high-throughput data from stem cell cultures undergoing differentiation towards functional cell types.

My main research interests are in developing bioinformatics algorithms integration of multi-omics data, data mining and biomarker discovery. I'm currently PI of a research project on data integration, and invovled in serveral ongoing projects in the Translational Bioinformatics research group. Common for several of these projects is that we are analyzing multiple types of omics data, e.g. transcriptomics, proteomics and epigenomics, and we want to combine these to perform integrative analysis. The purpose of this effort is to better understand the stem cell differentiation process and identify biomarkers for e.g. drug toxicity and diease modeling. A pre-print of my latest work is available in bioRxiv:
