About me

I am a senior consultant in anesthesia and intensive care working at the neuro-intensive care unit (NICU) at the Karolinska University Hospital, and conducting my research at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Karolinska Institutet.

Research description

My research has focused on integrated approaches of interpreting multiple data streams from brain injury patients. Among other approaches, I have applied machine learning pattern recognition techniques to data streams from multi-modal monitoring, particularly cerebral micro-dialysis, and computed tomography, laboratory values and epidemiological data.

My current research focuses on several aspects of brain injury including biomarkers, coagulation, dysautonomic reactions and multimodal monitoring. I am part of the large European FP7 observational study of traumatic brain injury (CENTER-TBI).
