Evaís research interest is to understand the evolution and development of human disease using large-scale genomics technology. During her PhD studies in Siv Anderssonís group in Molecular Evolution in Uppsala, Eva used whole genome sequencing and microarray comparative genome hybridization to study the evolution of the bacterial family Bartonella, which live in the blood of mammals and cause several severe human diseases. After completing her PhD in 2009, Eva moved to Ann-Christine Syvšnenís Molecular Medicine group in Uppsala, where she leads the bioinformatic work in a project aiming to identify genetic and epigenetic factors that are involved in the development of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common childhood cancer. In ENGAGE, Eva leads the bioinformatic analysis of the Epigenomics flagship project, studying differences in DNA methylation patterns in monozygotic twins that are discordant for various phenotypes.
