After a research internship at Skåne University Hospital (2013-2016), I started my residency at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Malmö. Working both clinically and with research, I completed my PhD from Lund University in 2019. The focus of of my doctoral project was studying the relationship of umbilical cord blood gases sampled at birth to perinatal asphyxia. Currently, I am completing my specialization in Obstetrics & Gynecology along with actively working on several post-doctorate research projects including investigating the possible effects of SARS-CoV-2 infection on the maternal-fetal unit. Interested T-10 students are welcome to contact me for possible research work in Obstetrics.
