I am a Associate professor in the medical program and also a senior consultant (attending) physician at Sunderby Hospital where I work within Region Norrbotten with return visits for patients who have suffered a stroke or TIA. I teach and conduct research in the subject of geriatrics, but I am also the project coordinator for medical students who write their degree theses.
The research is focused on the good aging and I defended my thesis in 2015 with a focus on morale in very old people within the Umeå 85+/GERDA study.
I also conduct research within the Silver-MONICA project.
I would like to develop research with a focus on the use of artificial intelligence, gerotechnology or e-health, i.e. areas where new technology in various ways can improve for older people's opportunities to have a good aging.
