Research

I hold a Master's degree in nutritional science and a Ph.D. in human biology (graded with summa cum laude). In 2013, my application to become an associate professor (docent) in neuroscience was approved by Uppsala University. Since 2014 I head a team of sleep scientists in the Department of Neuroscience at Uppsala University. Our lab studies the effects of circadian disruption and sleep loss on health and performance in humans. In our lab, we perform experimental studies, as well as work with cohort data (eg ULSAM and the UK Biobank).
