About me

  • I am a MD and specialist in Clinical Microbiology and soon also in Infectious
    Diseases. I got my medical degree from KI and since then I´ve been
    combining work in the laboratory and infectious disease department. Since
    2013 I am a registered PhD student.
    My PhD project is focused on newly diagnosed HIV infection and relies mainly
    on data from the Swedish InfCare HIV research database. We investigate the
    presence, nature and trends of baseline drug resistance in individuals
    diagnosed with HIV in Sweden. Within the EuroCoord modeling initiative, we
    design a model of HIV positive populations in Sweden. This is a promising
    approach to better estimate the proportion of undiagnosed individuals with
    HIV in Sweden. I am also involved in the development of biomarker based
    methods to estimate the time of infection in newly diagnosed patients.
    The aim of my studies is to increase knowledge of the undiagnosed HIV
    positive populations in Sweden, to guide preventive, diagnostic and
    therapeutic efforts, with special emphasis on migrant populations.
