Short presentation

I lead the research group EMBLA with the ambition to develop miniaturised systems for biomedical and life science applications based on advanced micro and nanofabrication methods and the use of microfluidics.

As of July 2021, I co-head the Division of Biomedical Engineering.

I am on a research exchange at UC Santa Barbara during the 2022/2023 academic year.

I joined Uppsala University as Associate Senior Lecturer in September 2014 upon an open call across the Faculty to attract young researchers to Uppsala. In early 2016 I was promoted to Senior Lecturer and as of 2019 I am full Professer and lead the research group EMBLA (Enabling Microtechnologies for Biomedical and Life science Applications) and teach in the undergradute programme for Engineering Physics. In July 2021 I started the new Division on Biomedical Engineering together with my colleague Prof. Cecilia Persson at the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering that we now co-lead.

My research career started in Denmark, where I received her PhD degree in Microtechnology from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 2007 after having completed my MSc degree in Physics at Lund University in 2003 and my BSc (Hons.) degree in Physics at Imperial College, London in 2002. I was appointed Docent at Uppsala University in 2015.

My main research interests are micro- and nanofabrication, microfluidic systems for on-chip cell cultures, droplet microfluidics, acoustofluidics and organs-on-chip.
