Karin holds an Executive MBA from the Stockholm School of Economics and a Bachelor's Degree in financial economics from Stockholm University. Her prior scientific work allowed her to be up to date on health economics, behavioral economics, translational Alzheimer neurobiology and the similarities in the underlying neuropathology of Downs Syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease. She would like to contribute to the work of the Alzheimer Europe (AE) Board concerning change management and strategic planning issues, combining business targets and sustainability goals.
