My name is Tomás McKenna. I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland.


I live in Stockholm, Sweden, and work as a research scientist at KI. I’m interested in the stem cell niche, and want to disentangle the effects of the extracellular matrix on stemness, and the results seem to be relevant for breast cancer metastasis.


When not working I like to practise Brazilian Ju-jitsu and climbing. I also love photography.

I have lived in Sweden since 2003, and write about hiking here, and keep a collection of photos I take on my other blog.
