Project coordinator

Personal profile


I am project coordinator at Solid State Physics and NanoLund.

InsectNeuroNano: I am supporting the coordinator, Anders Mikkelsen in this exciting research that will develop a nanophotonic chip inspired by the insect brain. 

How insect brain structures can inspire photonic chip design

Bio4Comp: until 2021, I was Project Manager for the Bio4Comp project, a FET-Open project funded by the H2020 programme, coordinated by Heiner Linke. Here, biological filaments that are propelled through nano-sized channels are used to solve mathematical algorithms. The maze of nanochannels represent a hard-coded mathematical algorithm. The advantage of this form of biological computing is that the energy conversion to propel the biological filaments is extremely efficient and that the computing operations are truly parallel.

Between 2014 and 2017, I managed other projects, including microfluidics, photovoltaics and other nano-energy related research.

The publications listed below originate from my involvement in a previous project, " PHIME - Public health impact of long-term, low-level mixed element exposure in susceptible population strata".

The project was an IP, running from 2006 to 2011, coordinated by Staffan Skerfving, with the objective to investigate the extent of exposure to toxic metals and its impact on public health.
