In April this year, I submitted my application for a position of associate professor in neurology at the Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden). Born in 1981 and graduating as MD in 2007, I completed specialist training in neurology in 2015, received a PhD degree in 2014 (main supervisor Nils Wahlgren) and became a consultant physician in 2019. My clinical and research interest centres on acute stroke therapies including their hemorrhagic complications, prehospital triage systems. More recently, building a fruitful collaboration with colleagues in neuroradiology, I have become involved in research and clinical implementation projects of novel diagnostic radiological methods in acute stroke, such as dual-energy and spectral computed tomography, as well as high-speed MR techniques.
I hold the position of Network and Research Executive with SITS International, being the national coordinator for SITS in Sweden. In 2010, I co-founded and in 2015-19 chaired the Swedish Acute Neurology Society, affiliated with ESQ and the Neurocritical Care Society. In 2015, I received the Young Investigator Award at the ESQ Conference and in 2012, the Outstanding Young Research in Stroke Award at the ESC. As of today, I have co-authored 32 peer-reviewed scientific papers in journals such as JAMA Neurology, Annals of Neurology, Neurology, and Stroke.
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
