I am a physical chemist with expertise in the field of colloidal science, skilled in experiments, theory and simulations to solve pharmaceutical problems – from small molecules to macromolecules like mRNA.

I have been working at AstraZeneca for over 25 years on gastrointestinal absorption, oral vaccines, molecular simulations, nanoparticle systems of poorly soluble drugs and more recently, on lipid nanoparticles and exosomes incorporating nucleic acids.

I received my PhD at Chalmers University of Technology in 1993. In 2007, I became an adjunct Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg, which enhances my interaction with the academic community.
