I work as a researcher at MT-FoU (CMTS, NUS) within the Umeå Hydrocephalus Research Group. Mainly I work with modeling and analysis of the pressure in the brain (intracranial pressure) and the flow dynamics in the fluid system that surrounds the brain and spinal cord (cerebrospinal fluid system). My research is mainly focused at developing and validating protocols and analysis methods for lumbar infusion measurements, which are performed at the Neurological Department at NUS. Right now I am the project manager for a Nordic multicenter study where we investigate whether this type of examination can be used to personalize the treatment of so-called Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus.
I am also active in MedTech4Health, a National Strategic Innovation Programme financed by VINNOVA, where MT-FoU, as a representative for the Center for Medical Technology and Physics (CMTF) acts as one of the programme's regional nodes.
I have a degree in Engineering Physics from KTH (2008) and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Dept. of Radiation Sciences, UMU (2013).
