I did my PhD at the University of Copenhagen using NMR spectroscopy to study intrinsically disordered proteins and the mechanism of coupled folding and binding. Subsequently, I did a postdoc at Cambridge University using single-molecule fluorescence techniques to study amyloid oligomers, and in Aarhus studying membrane protein dynamics.
In 2016, I was award seelcted for “Young Investigator Programme” by the Villum Foundation and a COFUND fellowship at Aarhus Institute of Advanced studies. Shortly, thereafter I started my own research group, and became affiliated with the Danish EMBL node DANDRITE as a Team Leader.
In 2017, I was one of the founding members of the DNRF Center of Excellence for Proteins in Memory: PROMEMO.
