About me

  • I'm a researcher within the Nordic-UK Brain Network led by Professor Miia
    Kivipelto. My background is within Biomedicine and I run projects on fluid
    biomarkers and disease mechanisms related to Alzheimer disease risk and


  • A number of risk factors for Alzheimer disease have been identified and
    preventive interventions in dementia is an important step to delay disease
    onset and disease progression. My goal is to gain more understanding of the
    biology behind prevention and risk for Alzheimer disease. By investigating
    how environmental factors and genes affect the brain at the molecular level,
    we can pinpoint the target molecules and in the future develop more
    individualized therapies and preventive interventions. Specifically we are
    studying mechanisms and biomarkers related to cholesterol dyshomeostasis,
    vascular factors, neuroinflammation, myelin break-down and oxidative stress
    utilizing well characterized clinical cohorts (brain, CSF, blood) as well as
    transgenic AD models and cell lines.
