Short CV

Professor Anders Eklund graduated as an MSc in Engineering Physics from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1993. He has worked both at the Physics Department, Umeå University and at the research and development department of Biomedical Engineering at Umeå University Hospital. Eklund initiated his doctorate studies in 1997 and obtained a PhD-degree in Biomedical engineering from Umeå University in 2002. Eklund was appointed Associate Professorship in Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Radiation Sciences, Umeå University, in 2005. Since 2012 he is Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Umeå University. His research field is models and measurement techniques concerning physiological fluid dynamics. Especially research related to the hydrodynamic characteristics of the cerebrospinal fluid system and the intraocular system as well as cerebrovascular hemodynamics. Together with Neurology Professor Jan Malm, he leads The Umeå Hydrocephalus Research Group, a multidisciplinary team that has funding from the Swedish Research Council, Swedish National Space Board, The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, JPND and many other sources. Eklund has published more than 130 peer reviewed journal papers and supervised 28 (18 completed and 10 ongoing) PhD students as main- or co-supervisor. For his work in the field of brain and eye fluid dynamics he has received Erna Ebeling award (2017), the Pudenz award (2020) and held the Marmarou lecture (2018).
