  • I am deeply fascinated by the brain: how the structure, function and neurochemistry of the human brain shapes the functioning of the human mind: our consciousness, perceptions, decisions, and actions. My early career and contributions focused on the human mind - on the interplay between cognition and emotion
  • how the way we feel shape what we perceive. I am particularly intrigued by how conventional MEG and on-scalp MEG can be used to elucidate and characterize ongoing neuronal brain activity. I currently combine two complementary approaches to contribute to an improved understating of the brain and the mind: one primarily aimed at my own research projects, the other aimed at promoting the imaging ecosystem at Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, and in Europe.


  • My main academic competence is within neuroscience (cognitive, affective, and clinical neuroscience) and brain imaging methods (foremost MEG, EEG, but also multimodal imaging), and this is where I have done my main contributions in terms of creating and leading courses. My teaching contributions span across the following: creating and arranging courses, teaching and training lab users, creating study materials, arrange workshops, arrange seminars and conferences, giving classroom and online lectures, supervising post docs, doctoral and master students.
