I am a biochemist and work at Karolinska Institute studying tissue stem cells – cells that maintain our tissues or repair them in case of damage. I love science communication and to take part in events that bring science closer to the general public.

I work as a PhD student at Karolinska, where I investigate the beautiful ability of the human brain to reorganize itself, called neuroplasticity. I love talking about neuroscience, especially to younger public. If not in the lab, I cook good vegan food.
