Current work

I have been a freelance journalist since 2015. I write for several of Swedens leading media outlets, including Forsking & Framsteg, Ny Teknik and Sveriges Radio (public service) . I am also co-hosting the podcast P3 Dystopia, among other radio shows.

My first book, The Re-origin of species, (Mammutens återkomst, Fri Tanke förlag) was published 2016. My second book, Människan i provröret (Natur & Kultur) was released March 2020.

My upcoming project, together with evolutionary biologist Jessica Abbott, is to describe the evolution of life. For this project, we got a grant, Natur och Kulturs arbetsstipendier,  in September 2019.

I give about 20 lectures a year on biology, biotechnology and the future of science.
