I am Associate Professor and consultant in Neurology, specializing in acute neurological disorders. My primary research focus is on cardiac arrest induced brain injury. During my thesis work in the Laboratory for Experimental Brain Research at Lund University I developed and characterized a new model of in vitro ischemia, most of my research has since been clinical.  Translating hypothermia, Targeted Temperature Management and other neuroprotective strategies through experimental research and clinical trials is a general aim and my own projects are mainly focused on:

1. Development and improvement of methods to diagnose brain injury during intensive care early after cardiac arrest.  Reliable protocols to determine the prognosis for meaningful recovery of neurological functions.

2. Cognitive impairment among cardiac arrest survivors - effects on quality-of-life and participation. Models of follow-up and rehabilitation.

I have a close collaboration with intensive care, clinical neurophysiology, neuropathology, radiology and experimental brain research and I am the tutor of several PhD students within the Center for Cardiac Arrest at Lund University.
