About me

  • I am a Phd student in Angelica Lindén Hirschbergs research group. I study

    composition and physical performance in elite level athletes. In addition we
    examine the impact of genetics and hormonal contraception on the female
    urinary steroid profile. I registered as a Phd student in the spring of 2015.

    I will start my research/clinical internship (forskar AT) at the Karolinska
    University Hospital.
