About me

I am a clinical researcher and neurologist specialising in the field of cerebrovascular diseases and acute neurological care. My place of work at Karolinska Institutet is the Department of Clinical Neuroscience. Since 2016, I hold a Clinical Postdoctoral Researcher position (funded by the Stockholm County Council) at the Department of Neurology at Karolinska University Hospital.

I am the co-founder and current chairman of the Swedish Acute Neurology Society, found at www.akutneurologi.org , affiliated with the European Stroke Organisation and the Neurocritical Care Society.

 

Education

  • University Medical Degree (MD) from the Faculty of Health Sciences at Linköping University in 2007.
  • Swedish Medical License, 2009.
  • PhD in Medicine at Karolinska Institutet, 2014.
  • Certified Specialist Physician in Neurology, by the Swedish National Board of Health, 2015.

Research description

My main research interests are acute recanalisation treatments in ischemic stroke, prehospital stroke triage, secondary prevention in stroke, and acute management of intracerebral hemorrhage.

I hold the position of Researcher at SITS International, a non-profit foundation coordinating several multinational stroke treatment registries - www.sitsinternational.org

Teaching portfolio

I am the main supervisor for one PhD student at the Dept. of Clinical Neuroscience at KI, Boris Keselman. Previously, I have been the main supervisor of one master thesis.

I am involved in teaching clinical neurology to 5th year medical students at the Department of Neurology, where I also served as Clinical Amanuensis in 2013.

Since 2015, I am involved in the oral Integrated Preparatory Examination taken by medical students after two full years of study, assessing their ability to integrate and apply knowledge of the medical sciences prior to entering the clinical phase of medical education.

In 2016, I was elected to the European Stroke Organisation Educational Committee. Here, I am mainly working with the World Stroke Academy, a collaborative educational project between the World Stroke Organisation and the European Stroke Organisation. It can be found at https://world-stroke-academy.org/

In 2011, I set up a Swedish translation of the patient information website www.neurosymptoms.org on functional and dissociative neurological symptoms, originally created by Dr. Jon Stone in Edinburgh. The Swedish site can be found at http://www.funktionellasymptom.se and has since its inception been viewed over 500.000 times.
