My basic training is in theoretical physics, where I have a M.Sc from Linköping university, but since my M.Sc. project I have been working with systems biology. First I worked in Copenhagen, on the insulin-producing beta cells, then at ISY in Linköping for 3 years, and at FCC in Gothenburg for 2 years. During those latter 5 years I did my Ph.D. thesis, which main accomplishment was the development of a new modelling approach: core-box modelling. Up until then I had only worked in theoretical, typically engineering, groups. After my Ph.D. I returned to Linköping, to build up my own systems biology group, at the experimental department IKE. During the first 4 years, I was also travelling 2 times a year for 1-2 months visits to various groups in the world: e.g., to Hiroaki Kitano, Stefan Hohmann, and Jens Timmer, and Alejandro Colman-Lerner. My current group is partly shared with that of Peter Strålfors, and it is described on this home page. Apart from building my own group, I have also started up and am currently coordinating the newly launched Linköping Centre for Systems Biology (LCSB), and I am also working towards establishing a major international network effort aspiring to construct multi-levels and co-constructed models for glucose homeostasis and type 2 diabetes.
