About me

  • I am a postdoc researcher in medicine at the Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC), Huddinge, Stockholm, Sweden.


  • My research focuses on pediatric medicine and neuroscience, specifically within the fields of otolaryngology and audiology. I hold a clinical position where I work part-time as a clinical pediatric audiologist and part-time on research.


  • I have a special interest in the hearing development, diagnostics, and intervention of newborns, infants, and toddlers. Additionally, I am particularly focused on pediatric unilateral hearing loss. My PhD thesis was dedicated to understanding congenital unilateral sensorineural hearing loss.


  • I am currently working on a longitudinal postdoc project on children with congenital unilateral sensorineural hearing loss. 

  • We are evaluating their hearing, speech, and language development, as well as the benefits of hearing aids, over the first 2.5 years of life. The first two articles of the project, describing the etiology and auditory profiles of twenty infants, were published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine
