My main research interest is in the field of pharmacoepidemiology. My current projects include studies of the risks and benefits of psychotropic medications (e.g., antidepressants, ADHD medication) using large-scale population data (e.g., national health registers, medical claim database).
As a separate research interest, I've also participated in a series of studies on the associations between mental and somatic disorders, using various data sources from Sweden, China, and the US.
