Associate professor, Neonatologist, Lund University/Skåne University Hospital, Lund University

MD. Specialist qualification in Pediatrics (2000) and Neonatology (2005). PhD at Uppsala University 2013. Postdoc in Kathmandu/Uppsala University. Now employed as senior consultant in Neonatology at Skånes University hospital, associate professor at Lund University.

My main research area of interest is the transition at birth, as the newborn adapts to extrauterine life. In particular, I have published several papers on the effect of keeping the umbilical cord intact for more than three minutes, so called delayed cord clamping.
