Short presentation

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

My courses


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 now I lead the research group EMBLA and teach in the undergradute programme for Engineering Physics.

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.

My main research interests are micro- and nanofabrication, development of microfluidic systems for cell-based applications and to develop so-called organs-on-chip.
