Short presentation

I am head of the SciLifeLab Ancient DNA facility. We provide analysis of ancient DNA as a service to researchers in Sweden and other countries. DNA constitute the basis of many of our traits, and ancient DNA can give us further understanding of the past. Such knowledge allow to better understand our societies, their development and the people who lived in the past, but it can also tell us how evolution and ecology have changed over time.

I have a background as researcher with experience in microbiology and gene technology. I have worked with analyzing the cell cycle of heat-loving (thermophilic) microorganisms, how microorganisms defend against viruses (CRISPR-Cas systems), and with developing gene technology tools. Today I work with developing methods and tools fo analysis of ancient DNA, and with providing them as a service to scientists and others.
