Sara BergwallPhD Student

Sara Bergwall holds a Bsc in Development Studies and a Msc in Public Health (MPH), both from Lund University. She has also taken numerous extracurricular courses in statistics and statistical software. She began her PhD studies in late 2017 with a general focus on diet, physical activity and cardiovacular disease.

Sara began her research career as a summer resarch fellow in 2017 with a project on diet quality and abdominal aortic aneurysm. However, it was already when writing the thesis at the MPH programme that her interest for research began. She conducted a questionnaire study aimed to elucidate if physical activity on prescription increased overall rates of physical activity in a sedentary population.

Her main interests are epidemiology and prevention, in particular physical activity. She also enjoys supervising and mentoring students.
