My interest in the small details in biological systems started when taking a course in zoophysiology, where I quickly found the micro-Star Wars universe in the cell fascinating. Switching track to physics, and later biophysics, I finished my studies in Stockholm University's Master's program in Molecular Biophysics by starting as a diploma student in the Himo group in September 2010. I started my Ph. D. studies in the same group in August 2011. During my time here I have also had the fortune to be introduced to the world of organic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis.

In my research, I investigate reaction mechanisms of biomimetic compounds using DFT methods. A present study involves dimetal phosphotriesterase and purple acid phosphatase mimicks synthesized by the Ebbe Nordlander group at Lund University.
