    I am a neurologist with a special interest in Movement Disorders,
    particularly Parkinson's disease, and in clinical research. I am proud to be
    a member of the Parkinson-group at the Center of Neurology, Academic
    Specialist Center at Torsplan, where we provide team-based patient care.
    Several clinical studies are ongoing in our clinic, and patients have the
    possibility to participate in research projects.

Research

  • In my research, I study the link between glucose control, diabetes, and
    Parkinson's disease (PD). My studies aim to investigate the effect of
    dysregulated glucose control on the progression of motor and non-motor
    symptoms in PD, to identify markers of glucometabolic derangement that may
    define subgroups of patients with targetable disease mechanisms, and to test
    the hypothesis that agents that improve insulin sensitivity may modify the
    disease course in PD.

Teaching

  • I serve as representative of the Center for Neurology (CfN) in the
    KI-Stockholm County Council collaboration for education and training
    (Utbildningsråd) and Director of medical students in CfN.
    I co-supervise several doctoral students, and one post-doctoral fellow, and
    have supervised several Erasmus students and undergraduate students in their
    research projects (examensarbete).
