Current work

I have been a freelance journalist since 2015. I write for several of Swedens leading media outlets, including Forsking & Framsteg, Ny Teknik, Sveriges Radio and Historiskan.
My book, The Re-origin of species was published in 2016 (Fri Tanke förlag) and in 2017 my radio show Hopp! was launched on public service radio. I am currently writing my next book for Natur & Kultur.

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