Om mig

I am a specialist in Internal medicine working at the department of Internal Medicine, Mora county hospital, Sweden. I am doing my doctoral thesis at 50% part time at the Departement of Neurobiology, care sciences ans society, Karolinska Institute.


My primary research focus is future cardiovascular risk. In previous articles I have explored different paroteins i blood as markers for future cardiovascular disease. My current aim in my doctoral thesis project is to investigate salt intakes impact on vascular atherosclerosis, metabolite profile in blood and possible changes in our gut microbiome.
