I am employed as a research assistant professor in cognitive aging at the Aging Research Center. My research interests cover a range of topics related to cognitive aging, including (a) cognitive functioning in normal aging and preclinical dementia, (b) the effect of vascular factors on cognition in normal aging and dementia, (c) the relationship between white matter microstructure and old-age cognition, (d) genetic effects on brain structure and cognition, (e) cognitive functioning in old-age depression, and (f) cognitive decline in close proximity to death.
Many of the studies I am involved in use data from the Swedish National study on Aging and Care in Kungsholmen (SNAC-K), a longitudinal population based study in which I am responsible for the collection of cognitive data.
