About me

  • I received my RD degree from Uppsala University in 2008 and is a Specialist Dietitian in Hepatology working at the Medical Unit Clinical Nutrition at
    Karolinska University Hospital. I defended my thesis “Assessment and Prognostic Importance of Nutritional Status and Body Composition in Liver Transplantation” in 2020.

    The primary objective of my research is to investigate the correlation between self-care practices, such as nutritional interventions and physical activity, and various health outcomes in liver disease. Current projects include research studies on the importance of nutrition for disease progression in chronic liver disease, both in patients with MASLD, and PSC and in patients with liver cirrhosis.


  • I am a lecturer at several different educational programs at Karolinska Institutet, including the Medical program, the Master’s program in nutrition science, and the Dentist program. I am also a lecturer at the Dietitian program at Uppsala University.
