I have worked as a Research Coordinator at the Department of Chemistry, UmU, since April 2021, acting as Platform Manager at the UmU data analytics platform CASP.

After completing my PhD in biochemistry and mass spectrometry at University College London (UCL), I worked as a Research Associate at the Clinical and Molecular Genetics Unit, UCL. In 2011, I took the exciting step of moving to Sweden as part of a Marie Curie Initial Training Network, working as an Experienced Researcher at the company AcureOmics AB, specialising in metabolomics.

A large part of my research involved developing mass spectrometry-based methods for both metabolite and protein analysis. My expertise extends to multivariate data analysis and the biological interpretation of omics data to help understand disease mechanisms, with particular focus on rare genetic disorders and age-related diseases.

During my time at AcureOmics, I had the opportunity to manage and execute several EU projects including the Marie Curie Initial Training Network BOLD, FP7 projects BioMargin and HUMAN and the Horizon 2020 project BatCure, whereby I acted as Principal Investigator. This gave me the opportunity to collaborate with a wide international network, which is something I thoroughly enjoyed and believe is a key part of research.
