About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow funded by the Swedish Society of Medical Research (50%) and work as a neurologist at the General South Hospital (Södersjukhuset-50%). I conduct registry research with the Swedish Dementia Registry, looking at factors to improve diagnosis, care, treatment and outcomes in dementia. I also collaborate with the European Dementia with Lewy bodies (E-DLB) consortium.
