I'm a neurology resident at the University Hospital of Umeå and a researcher in Dr. Jonatan Salzer's research group in the field of neuro-otology with focus on dizziness and rehabilitation after acute onset vertigo. I am the site-principal investigator at Umeå for Balanskontrollstudien, a national randomized controlled trial that is funded by the Swedish Research Council, with the aim of developing and evaluating an online tool for rehabilitation after acute vertigo. 

I have a multidisciplinary research background and have previously worked on amyloid proteins and fibrils, tuberculosis pathogenicity, and developing microfluidic systems for studying mycobacteria at the single cell level. I have a PhD in biomicrofluidics from the University of Surrey in the UK (2011) with a thesis entitled: "Investigating single cell growth dynamics of mycobacteria with microfluidics". Previous publications are under the last name "Golchin".
