Associate Professor & Senior Researcher
I earned Ph.D. in Geriatric Epidemiology at Karolinska Institute in 2008. During 2008-2012, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher. Thereafter, I was rewarded the 4-year funding for a Research Associate position (forskarassistent) from the Board of Research, Karolinska Institutet during 2013-2016. From 2017, I have been employed as a senior researcher. So far, I have supervised 6 PhD students (2 current and 4 defended).
My current research includes the following topics: the influences of diabetes, obesity, dental health, and diet/nutrition on cognitive aging, dementia and survival, and early identification and care of dementia.
