I am a graduate student at the division of Clinical Geriatrics since 2015. My supervisor is Anne Ekdahl and my co-supervisors are Lars-Olof Wahlund and Anne-Marie Boström. I also work as a resident at the Geriatric Clinic in Danderyd. I am affiliated to the The Swedish National Graduate School for Competitive Science on Ageing and Health, SWEAH, since 2017. 

Education

Medical degree, Linköping University, 2007. 

Research description

My field of research is frailty. I examine the effect of outpatient Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) on frailty. I will also look into how elderly with frailty can be recognised in Swedish Healthcare.
