About me

My main scientific activity focuses on development and application of biostatistical and epidemiological methods that can improve either the analysis of public health/medical data and/or communication of the findings. I am  associate professor of medical statistics and senior researcher.

I teach several courses on biostatistics (fundamentals, meta-analysis, flexible modeling, survival analysis) and use of Stata statistical software for a variety of participants (postgraduate, health professionals, clinicians, junior and more senior researchers) in different countries. 

Education

Doctoral Degree in Medical Science, Epidemiology, 2008. Karolinska Institutet.

Licentiate Degree in Medical Science, Epidemiology, 2006. Karolinska Institutet.
