Background and activities

I am PhD candidate at IKOM and resident in pediatrics at the Department of Pediatrics at St. Olavs Hospital, Trondheim University Hospital. My main interests are neonatology and global health.

I am part of the research group Neonatal medical research - NTNU Neo. You can find me at the Women and Children's Centre, 5th floor, 241.06.016.


My PhD project is “Perinatal asphyxia in a global perspective: How can we improve outcomes?” with main supervisor Ragnhild Støen. The first part of my PhD project is a retrospective observational study of incidence and long term outcome after perinatal asphyxia in Sør Trøndelag before and after implementation of therapeutic hypothermia (cooling). The second study is a randomized controlled trial of therapeutic hypothermia for infants with perinatal asphyxia in India (THIN-study).
