I am a Post-Doc working with analysing PDE models in the context of cell migration using Lie Groups and symmetry methods. I will work under the supervision of Professor Ruth E. Baker and the aim of the project is to develop a symmetry based methodology to for analysing, constructing and revealing fundamental biological properties of RD-models. The focus of the work is mainly to implement these methods on RD models where an emphasis lies on understanding the biological meaning of these mathematical objects.

I defended my PhD Thesis in Mathematical Biology at the University of Gothenburg in June 2020. I moved to Oxford in December 2020 to start a three year long Post Doc in Biomathematics. Originally, I come from Gothenburg in Sweden which is the city were I was born and has lived all my life until my move to Oxford. I am interested in football which I used to play when I was younger and I support my local team called IFK Göteborg. When I was 14 years old "the invincibles" won the league with a Swedish player Freddie Ljungberg among others, and I have since I was ten or so been a Gooner. I am also interested in playing the guitar, exercising and speaking languages (particularly French). Otherwise I am really interested in discussing science in a broader context.
Prizes, awards, and scholarships:
I was awarded the scholarship "Wenner-Gren Fellow-scholarship for postdoctoral education" from the Wenner-Gren Foundations in Sweden (see https://www.swgc.org/wenner-gren-fellows.aspx). It is this scholarship that finances my three year long Post-Doc starting from December 2020 to December 2023.
