Professional work

After my education in medical radiation physics I started to work with breathing adapted radiotherapy. In 2014 I defended my licentiate thesis "Optical surface scanning systems for breathing adapted radiotherapy and imaging".

Thereafter I changed my course and I currently work as a research engeneer responsible for a emergency preparedness laboratory. I am also part of several research projects and chairperson of the Swedish assosiation for radioecology (


I am involved in several research projects and have the ambition to one day defend a thesis. My research is mainly about radioactive contamination and how this can be detected and described. The hunt for the radioactive contamination from the Chernobyl fallout has brought me both into the dark Belarusian forests and deep into heavy Scanian clay soil. The combination of field expeditions and laboratory work is very rewarding.
