I have worked as an applied biostatistician at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics since 2009. My primary research interests are within cancer and reproductive epidemiology. Since April 2014 I am registered as a PhD student with professor Paul Dickman as main supervisor. My other supervisors are professor Magnus Björkholm, professor Paul Lambert, Sandra Eloranta and Ingrid Glimelius.
2009, MSc in Mathematical Statistics from Stockholm University
The topic of my PhD project is survivorship in Hodgkin lymphoma. The specific aims are to:
- Investigate if pregnancy triggers relapse among women in remission following a diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma.
- Describe temporal trends in childbearing among women in remission from Hodgkin lymphoma, by clinical characteristics and compared to the general population.
- Shed light on whether the decline in treatment-related mortality of diseases of the circulatory system, among patients with Hodgkin lymphoma, is thanks to less toxic treatments or improved follow-up and care.
- Study treatment-related morbidity and mortality of treatment-related secondary cancer among patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.
- Extend methods for estimating crude probabilities from a multi-state model to the relative survival setting.
