I received a MSc in Molecular Biothechnology in 1998, and during my MSc thesis work at the Karolinska Institute I was fascinated by how cells can be studied using microscopy, and continued as a PhD student in digital image processing at Uppsala University, focusing on methods for finding cells and extracting quantitative measurements from digital microscopy data. After completeing my PhD in 2003, I did a postdoc in genetics and pathology, with emphasis on methods development. I joined the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT i USA in 2009, and worked with algorithms for analysis of large scale experiments on model organisms such as C. elegans worms and zebrafish to evaluate the effect of new potential drugs. I returned to Sweden and SciLifeLab and became full professor in quantitative microscopy at the centre for image analysis, Dept. of Information Technology, in 2014. My reserach group develops digital image processing and analysis methods for analysis of different types of microscopy image data with applications in the life sciences and medicine, both basic and more application oriented research.
