Research

Cognitive fatigue after childhood cancer

Since  2017, I am a PhD student in clinical medicine at the Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund. My focus is neuropsychology and my thesis work involves the relationship between medical predictors and cognitive fatigue as well as the relationship between cognitive fatigue and cognitive abilities. Previous research includes pre-treatment cognition in children diagnosed with brain tumours.
