Background and activities

I hold a PhD in Neuroscience on the topic of Alzheimer's disease cell-specific vulnerability, from the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience. I now work as a researcher at the K.G. Jebsen Center for Alzheimer's Disease (NTNU).

I am interested in brain function and malfunction and have a particular interest in neurodegeneration. Currently, I focus on the question of how and why Alzheimer’s disease develops, a disease known to heavily target the medial temporal lobe memory system. Three questions are currently the main focus of my attention: 1) Which brain region(s) show the first sign of any pathological change? 2) Are all types of neurons in a given region affected equally by disease-processes during the initial stages? 3) Can certain types of neurons drive the spread of disease to other anatomically connected regions?
