About Me

My name is Carl and I am from Sweden. I did my master in molecular biotechnology at Lund University. My previous work has been with recombinant spider silk proteins. During my phd here at the University of Warwick I will use NMR to study the structure of bacterial peptidoglycan. Even if peptidoglycan has been studied for a very long time there is still much to discover regarding the structure.

International Secondment

From the 12th of January until the 10th of April 2015 I am on my international secondment in Lyon, France. I am at the CRMN, where I am learning about NMR protein structure calculations with Torsten Herrmann. Torsten has developed the software UNIO, which can be used for automatic assignment of NMR spectra combined with structure calculations. I am learning about structure calculations in general, automatic structure calculations and also working on how to use these calculations on peptidoglycan.
