About me

I am a Phd student in Angelica Lindén Hirschbergs research group. I study endogenous androgens and other anabolic hormones relation to body 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 have since then combined research and Clinical work. In the spring of 2017 I will start my research/clinical internship (forskar AT) at the Karolinska University Hospital.
