About me

  • I am a medical doctor who is currently undergoing my Ph.D. education at KI in the Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Division of Psychology (2024-present). My research interests are varied and lie at the intersection of psychiatry, psychology, social epidemiology, inflammation, community-based participatory research, and medical ethics. I have a special interest in the health of sexual minority populations. I have also worked as a journalist for local and international news organizations.
