PhD-student at the Department of Photochemistry & Molecular Science, Uppsala university.

Within the greater goal of renewable production using solar energy, I’m working with the design and implementation of biological tools and systems in the photosynthetic cyanobacteria. This includes transcriptional and post-transcriptional control, development of standard (BioBrick) plasmids and heterologous expression of hydrogenases. Additional research interests include light-regulated transcription and in vivo localization. Developing and advising iGEM-teams (Uppsala-Sweden 2009 & 2010) provide me with inspiration, and will hopefully help in advancing Synthetic biology.
