Research description

I work mainly on register-based studies of perinatal risk-factors and outcomes, focusing on near-term and term newborn infants. Specifically, I perform diagnostic studies of the routine examination of newborn infants and cohort studies of neonatal hypoglycaemia treated at the well-baby clinic. As a side-track I am also working with studies on paediatric gastroenterology and neonatal seizures.

I have a great interest in pedagogy and teaching. I still teach at the KI/SLL Research School in Epidemiology and I have organized several epidemiology courses of different formats for other post-graduate students. I am part of the research school steering group, reading applications to the school every year. I also teach medical students at Karolinska Institutet on a regular basis. For the future, I am interested in creating e-learning courses and I have recently taken a course in Open Network Learning.

 I have been visiting professor at Humanitas University in Milan, Italy 2015-2016. This cooperation has led to one manuscript so far. I am also cooperating with SDA Bocconi School of Management and Milano-Bicocca University in Milan. Among other things, I have taught epidemiology at the SDA Bocconi Master of International Health Care Management, Economics and Policy (MIHMEP), an international leadership course for physicians at Humanitas/Bocconi and to the medical students at Humanitas.
