I am a PhD student at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, where I am working on my project "Fossilized microorganisms in deep rock and deep time".

My current work is aimed to understand how extreme climate, and impact events can be recorded in fossilized microorganisms found in the deep biosphere. By studying the connection between past life, the surrounding mineralogy, as well as the role of hydrothermal fluids, we might be able to reconstruct Earths climate. I will also evaluate if and how fossilized life in open pore spaces in bedrock might be used as a biosignature, as well as to get a better understanding on where to find possible life on other terrestrial bodies.
