What is your mission at NVS?/What will you be working with?

I am a postdoc, and will work with data harmonizing within NEAR (The National E-Infrastructure on Aging Research), including scientific publications on aging, depression, and dementia from an epidemiological perspective.

Which division will you be working at?

The Division of Aging Research Center (ARC).

What do you look forward to the most in your new position? 

To gain research experience from another university, getting to know new colleagues in our field of research.

Where have you been active before and what have you done earlier?

I earned my PhD in psychiatric epidemiology from Gothenburg University, Centre for Aging and Health (AgeCap). My research focus was sex and gender differences in depression from a gender perspective, based on epidemiological data from the H70 studies in Gothenburg.

When you are not working, what do you do for recreation?

Spending time with family and friends, and renovating a 100-year-old house.

Are you reading a book at the moment? Which one?

Besides scientific articles and course literature, my leisure reading is spent on books about childbirth, due to an impending addition to the family.
