His research focus is on pathophysiological, diagnostic and clinical aspects of hydrocephalus, specifically normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), other CSF dynamic and neurodegenerative CNS disorders. His thesis, "White matter pathology in normal pressure hydrocephalus and subcortical arteriosclerotic encephalopathy: clinical, CSF and MRI aspects" was defended in 2001 and followed by a year as post-doc at UC Davis, California. He is presently heading the Hydrocephalus research unit, Sahlgrenska Academy/Sahlgrenska University Hospital.
