About me

I came to Stockholm University, in the late 90ies for a Diploma work at the Department of Environmental Chemistry. After that I was enrolled as a PhD student and in 2003 I defended my thesis “Dose monitoring for Health Risk Assessment of Exposure to Acrylamide. As a researcher I have worked within several research projects concerning exposure to organic environmental contaminants (e.g. HEATOX, ChEmiTecs, SIDA and CHEMSTRRES). I am Director of Studies in Environmental Chemistry.
