About me

  • I am employed as a senior lecturer in aging, neuropsychology, and brain
    imaging at the Aging Research Center. There, I am leading a research group
    that covers a range of topics related to cognitive aging, including (a)
    cognitive functioning in the preclinical dementia phase, (b) the effect of
    vascular factors on cognitive performance in normal aging and dementia, (c)
    correlates of olfactory function in aging, (d) genetic effects on brain
    structure and cognition, and (e) structural brain correlates to old-age
    cognitive performance.
    In parallel with my research activities, I am the scientific coordinator of
    the collection of cognitive data in the Swedish National study on Aging and
    Care in Kungsholmen (SNAC-K) and regularly teaches classes related to
    cognition, aging, and dementia.
