I completed my scientific training with a PhD degree at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. My field of research focuses on the effects of cigarettes, e-cigarettes and nicotine on blood vessels and pulmonary function. Most recently it has shifted towards the effects of the SARS-CoV 2 – infection.
