My research investigates mechanisms behind individual differences in cognitive aging, specifically in our ability for long-term memory. In other words, why do some individuals maintain a high memory ability into old age while others gradually lose it? To better understand such differences I study brain structure and function, biological markers, differences in lifestyle and living conditions, as well as cognitive ability differences in early life. My research is mainly conducted in the context of the longitudinal Betula study, but I also collaborate with a European consortium, Lifebrain, to study these questions. I am affiliated to Umeå center for Functional Brain Imaging, UFBI.

My teaching covers various topics within cognitive neuroscience, on both basic and advanced levels. I'm a course coordinator for the course Functional brain imaging using fMRI (3FS000). In addition, I sometimes supervise student projects.
