We are researching the transmission routes of infection in the society and in healthcare, we predict the risk of infection outbreaks and risk for individuals, and we aim at threat-mitigation of microbes that are resistant to antimicrobial drugs. 

In our research, we combine clinical data with analyses of disease-causing microbes using molecular microbiology methods, genome sequencing, phylogenetics, spatiotemporal analysis, and epidemiology methods. We use artificial intelligence methods for analyzing big data in electronic health records and in electronic systems of clinical microbiology laboratories to predict infection, to more rapidly detect infection, and for automated surveillance of manifest infections. Because we recognize that the behavior of humans to a very large extent determines the risk of most infections, we perform behavioral intervention studies promoting better antimicrobial drug use and reducing the risk of healthcare-associated infections.

Anders is interested in professional affairs and science outreach. He is appointed to the National steering committee of Strama Sweden, the strategic program against antibiotic resistance, and he chairs the Society for infection control physicians in Sweden. He is appointed to the Steering Committee of EUCIC, which is the infection control entity within the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) and he is the General Secretary of the board of the Nordic Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (NSCMID).
