Nothing expands your mind like travelling does...
I really enjoy seeing new places, both alone and with my family. Here are a couple of pictures from some of the places I´ve been to.
I am a researcher, entrepreneur, traveler, blogger, and mother of three.
This is my website, containing a blog about my experiences during my postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford and as a researcher at Uppsala University. I also write about places I’ve traveled to, near and far.
Green Fluorescence Protein (GFP)
Can we engineer a protein that can be used in clinical diagnostics?
Liver Alcohol Dehydrogenase (LADH)
Can we predict how amino acid substitutions will affect catalysis?
TEM beta-lactamase & antibiotics
Can we design novel antibiotics that are not affected by resistance?
Insulin-regulated aminopeptidases (IRAP)
Can we create efficient drugs for treating Alzheimers?
NSAIDs and Cyclooxygenases (COX) 1 &2
Can we rationally design more potent painkillers with fewer side-effects?
Did you know about my company?
I enjoy writing. Having kept a diary since I was very young, and growing up in the first Internet age, I liked the idea of keeping an online diary. And so blogging started. But my writing experience has also been very useful in my research career as I continue my professional development.
I started helping scientists and students with their manuscripts and theses after having helped many co-workers and friends with theirs. This was how my company YS Consulting started. If you want to know what I can do for you, visit my consulting website!
Scientific Writing Coach
I once attended a course in scientific writing and was surprised by all the things I didn´t know that I didn´t know about how to write a scientific manuscript.
To help other scientists, I started offering workshops where I go through the different sections of the manuscript and, more importantly, the required content and sub-sections of each section. Want to know more? Contact me through the Scientific Writing Coach website!
