About me

  • I am a biostatistician with over 15 years of experience working in register-based epidemiological research. I work in the Clinical Cancer Epidemiology Group at the Clinical Epidemiology Division (KEP). Currently, I split my time between applied research in lymphoma and colorectal cancer, and methods development in the field of cancer patient survival research.

Research

Teaching

  • I am currently co-supervisor of the following PhD students:

    Anna Nikkarinen is registered at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, Experimental and Clinical Oncology, Uppsala University, since 2019. Anna is an MD and her thesis is on Mantle cell lymphoma with a focus on biology and targeted treatments. Her main supervisor is professor Ingrid Glimelius, and she plans to defend her thesis during 2025.

    Mehrnoosh Shahrivar is an MD and surgeon and initiated her graduate studies in 2020 at the Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery (KI). The aim of her thesis is to analyse the colorectal cancer genetic profile, in combination with aspirin use, and its impact on prognosis and treatment. Mehrnoosh will be utilizing data from CRCBaSe as well as from the ongoing ALASCCA (Adjuvant Low Dose Aspirin in Colorectal Cancer) [1] trial. Her main supervisor is docent Caroline Nordenvall, and she plans to defend her thesis during 2025.

    Joshua Entrop has a master's degree in public health and is studying childbearing after modern-day intensive immuno-chemotherapy in young Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivors. Joshua is registered at the Clinical Epidemiology Division since 2020 with main supervisor docent Sandra Eloranta, and will defend his thesis in January 2025.

    Malin Ljunggren is an MD and is studying patient selection for curative-intended treatments for stage IV colorectal cancer, with special focus on patients with peritoneal metastases (PM). She registered in 2021 at the Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery (KI) with main supervisor docent Caroline Nordenvall, and plans to defend her thesis during 2025.

    Johanna Borg Bruchfeld investigates sex-related differences in incidence and outcomes among patients with lymphoma from both an epidemiological and a biological perspective. Johanna is an MD and has been registered as a PhD student at the Department of Medicine Solna (KI) since 2019. Her main supervisor is Tove Wästerlid.
