Background and activities
Eivind Schjelderup Skarpsno is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Public Health and Nursing (ISM). He is a part of the research groups “Musculoskeletal Research” and “Epidemiology and Medical Statistics”. He teaches at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and is a steering board member in the National Research School in Population Based Epidemiology (EPINOR). His research focuses on how sleep quality is associed with the risk and prognosis of disease.
