I am senior lecturer in physiotherapy and associate professor in aging research at Karolinska Institutet (KI). I am also vice-principal investigator of the Swedish National study on Aging and Care in Kungsholmen (SNAC-K: http://www.snac-k.se) population-study. I obtained my PhD in physiotherapy at KI. Thereafter, I did my postdoctoral training first at the Sahlgrenska Academy in Gothenburg and then at the Aging Research Center, KI.

My primary area of research interest is the epidemiology of physical function, physical activity/sedentary behavior and falls in older persons. Personal webpage: https://ki.se/en/people/asvenss

I have arranged several courses in physiotherapy and geriatric epidemiology/public health. Currently, I am responsible for the master course in dementia care for physiotherapists and occupational therapists at KI. I am also responsible for a freestanding course on health in old age from a multidimensional perspective. Furthermore, I teach physiotherapy students in global health, research methodology, and geriatrics.
