Postdoctoral Researcher working in a collaborative project, between University of Skövde and AstraZeneca, on cardiac regeneration.

Research interests:

  • Development of stem cell-based model systems for modeling heart failure in vitro and drug discovery
  • Analysis and interpretation of large-scale omics data
  • Study how cellular metabolism changes and adapts during cardiac development and in cardiovascular diseases
