About me

Both my clinical and scientific career started in the field of cardio-thoracic surgery. The main focus of my early research was to analyse and to better define perioperative myocardial infarction in association with coronary artery bypass surgery. After switching my clinical and research focus to vascular surgery, I have kept an interest in studying the effect of surgery on the heart. Most of my recent scientific work deals with thoracic aortic disease, particularly aortic dissection. 

Research description

My research on thoracic aortic disease so far was mainly carried out at Uppsala University and at the University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland. I have an ongoing collaboration with the two centres. My current projects are at large conducted in cooperation with members of the STAR network at the Karolinska Institute.
