About me

  • I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard School of Public Health and
    Karolinska Institutet, IMM, unit of Epidemiology. My background is in
    nutrition with degrees both from Karolinska and the Shahid Beheshti
    University in Tehran. In March of 2016, I defended my thesis on environmental
    risk factors for LADA-latent autoimmune diabetes in adults at Karolinska.
    Since then, I have continued my work on adult onset autoimmune diabetes,
    focusing on gene*lifestyle interaction. Much of my work is based on Norwegian
    cohort HUNT study with 22-year follow-up, and the ongoing Swedish
    population-based case-control ESTRID study, which has a strong focus on
    environmental risk factors for LADA and type 2 diabetes and gene*lifestyle
    I have started a postdoc fellowship at Harvard School of Public Health,
    department of Global Health. This, will provide a unique opportunity to
    expand my knowledge and expertise in epidemiological methods and to acquire
    invaluable new knowledge in the field of global and public health. In my
    future research I want to focus on primary prevention of diabetes with a
    global perspective.
