About me

  • -------- ------------------------------------------------------------------
    I am a statistician with a doctoral degree in epidemiology from Karolinska
    Institutet. Since 2023 I am Docent in Epidemiology. As part of Johan
    Askling's research group on chronic inflammatory disease epidemiology,
    my research focuses on safety and effectiveness of treatments for chronic
    inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis(RA), psoriatic
    arthritis(PsA) and spondyloarthritis(SpA). Morevoer, I have a deep interest
    in the role of environmental risk factor, and in particular diet, on risk and
    prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
