I am part of the NanoLund Project Office as well as project coordinator at Solid State Physics.
Bio4Comp: currently, I am Project Manager for the Bio4Comp project, a FET-Open project funded by the H2020 programme, coordinated by Heiner Linke. Here, biological filaments that are propelled through nano-sized channels are used to solve mathematical algorithms. The maze of nanochannels represent a hard-coded mathematical algorithm. The advantage of this form of biological computing is that the energy conversion to propel the biological filaments is extremely efficient and that the computing operations are truly parallel.

Previously, I managed other projects, including microfluidics, photovoltaics and other nano-energy related research.
PhD4Energy, Nanoscale Materials for Energy: Fundamentals, Applications and Safety, MSCA funded 2014-2018
Nano-Tandem, Nanowire based tandem solar cells, a pathway to highly efficient solar cells with low material use, H2020, 2015-2019
LAPASO, Label-free particle sorting of cells by microfluidic technologies to advance diagnostics for human parasitic diseases and rare cells, MSCA funded 2013-2017
The publications listed below originate from my involvement in a previous project, " PHIME - Public health impact of long-term, low-level mixed element exposure in susceptible population strata".
The project was an IP, running from 2006 to 2011, coordinated by Staffan Skerfving, with the objective to investigate the extent of exposure to toxic metals and its impact on public health.
