About me

  • I am a PhD student at the Aging Research Center (ARC). My research focuses on the connection between cardiometabolic disease (i.e. type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke) and dementia. This spans the association between cardiometabolic diseases and various cognitive
    phenotypes, the mechanisms underlying this, and whether the effect of cardiometabolic diseases on the brain can be mitigated by healthy lifestyle
    factors. My PhD project is supervised by Weili Xu, together with Anna Marseglia and Davide Vetrano, and is affiliated with the Swedish Graduate
    National School on Aging and Health (SWEAH).

    I have both a bachelor's and a master's degree in neuroscience. In between these degree programs I spent two years working as a science journalist focused on the global diabetes/obesity epidemic.
