I have worked as an applied biostatistician at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics since 2009. My primary research interests are within cancer and reproductive epidemiology. Since April 2014 I am registered as a PhD student with professor Paul Dickman as main supervisor. My other supervisors are professor Magnus Björkholm, professor Paul Lambert, Sandra Eloranta and professor Sigurður Kristinsson.
2009, MSc in Mathematical Statistics from Stockholm University
The title of my PhD project is "Relapse, comorbidities and secondary malignancies in patients diagnosed with haematological cancer". The specific aims are:
- To investigate if pregnancy triggers relapse among women in remission following a diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma.
- Develop and apply methods for studying treatment-related morbidity and mortality among patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.
- Develop malignancy-specific comorbidity indices for use in studies of cause-specific survival, and evaluate their performance compared to existing indices.
- To calculate health-adjusted age by refining existing methods for constructing comorbidity-adjusted life tables for non-cancer mortality.
