Background and activities

I am a resident in neurology at St. Olav's Hospital and a PhD Candidate at the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science, and Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience.

PhD project

In my PhD project, I am investigating basal mechanisms underlying epilepsy. In our research, we use zebrafish, a model organism with increasing popularity in epilepsy research.
