About me

I am an epidemiologist with a research focus on the causes and consequences of chronic inflammatory diseases.

Research description

Sarcoidosis

I am currently the principal investigator of a multi-register data linkage project on sarcoidosis. For more information on my work on sarcoidosis, please visit our website: Sarcoidosis Epidemiology Research Group

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

My work includes investigations of risk factors for systemic lupus erythematosus, outcomes after pregnancy in lupus and comorbidities associated with lupus such as stroke. 

Rheumatoid Arthritis

I began my career examining risk factors for rheumatoid arthritis using data from the Nurses' Health Studies. Since then, I have investigated adverse events associated with biological treatment in rheumatoid arthritis such as infection.
