It's that time of year again where I start to move my anaerobic training indoors onto the #spinningbike , while I continue to run for aerobic training until I can start #langrenn #crosscountryskiing. I spent all of last winter season trying to come up with a #spinning routine that I really like, so now I decided to share it on my blog. Check the link in my bio 🔝 for the playlist plus description of the routine, and a link to my #spotify playlist. Say hi to my first potential foster failures! 😻 These two sisters got out of a situation with 60 (!) cats and are now looking for a forever home. Until then, I get to spoil the hell out of them 😊 #cat #catsofinstagram Not having to worry about anything other than whether the view out of your tent in the morning will be better here or a couple of metres over there... #spaholiday

Lightning fast this time because I was good and wrote all (most) of the text during the trip. Hit the link in my bio 🔝 for a story about views and non-views on the peaks, being chased by rain clouds, spotting whale bones and live whales, and more.

About

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Simula Research Laboratory in Oslo, Norway. Using tools and techniques from both mathematics and engineering I simulate cardiac perfusion of nanoparticle drug delivery via inhalation (CUPIDO project). The incidence of cardiovascular diseases is constantly on the rise and poses a major death threat. Nanoparticle drug delivery provides a promising avenue for noninvasive and safe treatment of various cardiovascular diseases.

Previously I was Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Southampton, UK and investigated lymphatic drainage in the brain, trying to resolve the driving mechanisms behind it and its failure during age. This is particularly relevant for Alzheimer’s disease. As we age our brain’s lymphatic system slows down and if it fails entirely protein deposits in the walls of arteries lead to the onset of dementia. My PhD thesis deals with the investigation of the role of arterial pulsations as a potential major driving mechanism.
