About me

  • I am an Assistant Professor in Epidemiology and Causal Inference. The primary long-term goal of my research is to understand how to best use observational data to address questions on interventions that aim to prevent or treat disease. This encompasses developing, refining, and implementing advanced frameworks and methods for causal inference. I have specific interests in understanding how we can use observational data to complement inferences made in randomized trials.

    I am funded by the Swedish Research Council, FORTE, and SFOepi.

    PhD in Epidemiology - 2016 to 2019 - London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine - My thesis explored the effect of endocrine therapies on the risk of cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors.
    MPhil in Epidemiology - 2013 to 2014 - University of Cambridge
    BSc in Mathematics - 2009 to 2012 - University of York


  • I am the director of the courses "Causal Inference: emulating a Target Trial to Assess Comparative Effectiveness" and "Transporting treatment effects from randomized trials to real-world target populations" on the Doctoral programme in Epidemiology.

    I also run the CAUSALab Methods Series. You can find recordings of all talks here:
