Research Fellow


NatMEG, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden (Assistant Professor)

Research Interests

I am interested in the neural processes behind motor control, how this integrate with cognitive aspects of voluntary motor control and how it relates to loss of control and is affected by disease such as Parkinson’s disease. I work with EEG (and previously also MEG) methods and analysis to study neural oscillations in motor control and disease.
