I work as a postdoc in the Umeå Hydrocephalus Research Group at the Department of Radiation Sciences. I mainly work as a researcher within the field of Biomedical Engineering, focusing on modeling and measurement of the dynamics of the cerebrospinal fluid with applications towards neurosciences. Currently, I am involved in projects studying the fluid dynamic interactions between the eye and brain with respect to gravitational/postural effects, and investigations of the Glymphatic system, a suggested clearance system for the brain. Methods I work with include pressure measurements, MRI and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Other than doing reseach, I also participate in education as a lecturer on measurement techniques, pressure and flow measurements, and ultrasound.

   
In 2019 I received my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Department of Radiation Sciences, Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden. Before that, I graduated as a Master of Science in Engineering Physics at Umeå University in 2014.
