I am an astronomer, currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Young Stars group at the Center for Star and Planet Formation (Starplan), Copenhagen, Denmark and at Chalmers University of Technology. My research interests are mainly in the field of star- and planet formation, with focus on the physics and chemistry of molecular outflows and shocks. Before taking up my current position, I worked as a project assistant at the Onsala Space Observatory, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. I was responsible for carrying out observations at the APEX telescope in Chile, during swedish time. I received my Ph.D. From Chalmers on November 30, 2012. This is my personal website and it includes work related material as well as some private stuff.
