About me

I graduated from the Karolinska Institutet MD-program in 2000 and  defended my PhD-thesis “Long-term cardiovascular follow-up after preterm birth” at the Karolinska Institutet in 2008. Since 2009, I am  Board Certified Pediatrician in Sweden and also International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am associate professor (docent) at KI since 2014. Currently, I am the Vice President of the Swedish Pediatric Society and have previously served as Scientific Secretary of the Swedish Pediatric Society 2014-2016.

Research description

My research in perinatal epidemiology focuses on cardiovascular disease in relation to preterm birth and other pregnancy complications, in both the mother and the child. Presently, I investigate how the diagnostics of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) could be improved and how treatment of of PDA is associated to short term morbidity and complications in very preterm infants. Moreover, I am an investigator in the EPICE-project, a European FP7-financed project that studies implementation of evidence based practices in European neonatal intensive care (http://www.epiceproject.eu/en/). Another research interest is the future cardiovascular health of women that delivered preterm or had other pregnancy complications, which I currently investigate in collaboration with researchers from Umeå University, Sweden and the University of California San Francisco, USA.
