About me

  • Associate professor (Docent, Senior researcher). 


  • I am a principal investigator and group leader at the Division of Neurogeriatrics at Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden.

Research

  • My background is in neuroendocrinology and my research focuses on the effects of sex hormone signaling on healthy brain aging. A major research topic of mine is how aberrant sex hormone signaling during endocrine sensitive life stages can modulate risk of depressive and neurodegenerative conditions. To this end, I am part of a network of specialists that employ multidisciplinary approaches, combining human epidemiological data with innovative experimental modeling and large-scale data integration to spearhead this research area.
