I obtained my PhD from the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Poul Nissen. I worked on two particular P-type ATPases, one that transports calcium and another that transports copper, both of which I studied with a range of different methods within structural biology.

Primære forskningsområder

  • Membrane protein cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM)
  • Development of copolymers for native nanodiscs
  • Lipid-protein interactions 

Aktuel forskning

My research is centered on characterizing ion channels and receptors using single-particle cryo-EM and other complimentary biophysical and biochemical methods. I am particularly interested in taste signalling and the effects that the lipid bilayer and other cellular neighbors have on the function of mammalian, integral membrane proteins.
