I am an epidemiologist with a doctoral degree in epidemiology from Harvard School of Public Health and postdoctoral training in chronic disease epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet. I received Docent in Epidemiology in 2018. My research focuses on the causes and consequences of chronic inflammatory diseases, including sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, among others. My work aims to leverage the power of Swedish population-based registers and epidemiological methods to conduct large-scale investigations of risk factors and outcomes associated with these diseases.

I am the principal investigator of a multi-register data linkage project on sarcoidosis. For more information, please visit our website: Sarcoidosis Epidemiology Research Group
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
My research focuses on quantifying risks of comorbidities associated with lupus and understanding the scope of the burden of disease. Several projects investigate risk factors for lupus.
I began my career examining risk factors for rheumatoid arthritis using data from the Nurses' Health Studies. My current work is on adverse events associated with biological treatment in rheumatoid arthritis.
