Current research

Since I started at Chalmers in July 2008, I focused my research interest on yeast S. cerevisiae cell death and aging. We are combining methods of molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics and systems biology (including omics and modeling) with the scope to study how cells regulate aging and death pathways and how are these pathways related to proteostasis (proteome homeostasis).
