I carried out predoctoral research at Harvard Medical School and postdoctoral research at the Stockholm Center for Biomembrane Research. Currently I am PI, Group Leader, and Head of PhD studies at DTU Biosustain. My research focuses on bacterial synthetic biology, experimental evolution, and protein production. In addition, I serve as the Chief Scientific Officer, board member, and co-owner of the Swedish biotech start-up CloneOpt AB and recently cofounded the Danish biotech company Mycropt ApS, where I serve as interim CEO in the start-up phase.
