🧬 About me
As a bioinformatician/SciLifeLab and Wallenberg Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) Postdoctoral Fellow, I develop and apply bioinformatic methods to improve our understanding of bacterial pathogens, their spread, and evolution.
🔬 My current research
I'm currently developing methods to analyse single-cell bacterial (meta)genomics data. The goal of the project is to provide the scientific community with a valuable, straight-forward way to do single-cell metagenomics experiments, which will have interesting properties compared to "bulk" metagenomics. Such experiments will further our understanding of how pathogens spread and evolve, as well as how microbes interact with each other.
🌎 My scientific journey
Previously, I was a Postdoc in Åsa Johansson's group at Uppsala University, working on developping machine learning methods to predict complex diseases.
Before that, I was a PhD student in Erik Bongcam's group at SLU, working on assessing the anthropogenic impact on West Indian Ocean coral reefs.
I'm also currently employed at the Public Health Agency of Sweden, where I oversee the design of analysis pipelines for whole genome sequencing data, and the automation platform on which the pipelines are running.
😎 When I'm not playing around with (meta)genomic data, I'm...
