I graduated from Uppsala University with a master’s degree in chemical engineering with a specialization in pharmaceutical science. After working a couple of months at the company where I did my master’s project as a research scientist, I got the opportunity to move abroad and explore the world of carbohydrate chemistry and synthetic vaccines within the scope of PAVax, for which I am very happy.

The purpose of my project is to gain information on composition and immunological properties of exopolysaccharides from PA. The polysaccharides will be isolated and characterized to produce conjugates that will be used to generate specific sera for investigating their recognition of biofilms from different PA strains and probing their functional activity.
