I graduated from medical school in January 2013 and in September 2014 I received my license to practice medicine. I am a resident in Rehabilitation Medicine at Skåne University Hospital since March 2015 and in 2018 I started my PhD in the Rehabilitation Medicine Research Group.
In my research project – the Swedish Spinal Cord Injury Study on Cardiopulmonary and Autonomic Impairment (SPICA) – I study health consequences in the lungs, heart, vascular and autonomic nervous systems in middle-aged persons aging with spinal cord injury. The aim is to contribute with new knowledge regarding long-term structural and functional effects in these organ systems, which are responsible for a large proportion of the morbidity and mortality in this group. My main supervisor is Jan Lexell and my assistant supervisor is Sophie Jörgensen.
