Proteome dynamics in cyanobacteria. For more information about my projects, see below.
My interest in cyanobacterial research started when I did my master project “Localization of the nifH transcript in the cyanobacterium Anabaena PCC 7120” in the lab of Prof Lindblad, and consequently received a MSc in Biology from Uppsala University in 1994. Since then I have gathered a broad knowledge in molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology and plant physiology. I did my PhD studies at the Swedish Agricultural University (SLU) in Prof. Lisbeth Jonssons group, where I studied the interaction of plants and pests. I received my PhD in Plant Physiology in 2000. I did postdoctoral studies at the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University (now Copenhagen University) in the group of Prof Birger Lindberg Møller where I used molecular and biochemical techniques to characterise the biosynthesis of natural products in plants. I have been a research scientist since 2003, and I have continued in exploring natural products, but now; molecular hydrogen from cyanobacteria. Since July 2007 I am an assistant professor (forskar assistent) in Molecular Biomimetics at the dept. of Photochemistry and Molecular Sciences (FotoMol) at Uppsala University. In my research I am exploring the proteome dynamics in cyanobacteria. For more information about my projects see below.
