About me

  • I am a clinical oncologist, certified by the National Board of Health
    (2015), Sweden. Since 2015, I work at the Pediatric Oncology Unit, Karolinska
    University Hospital. Here I see children with all kinds of malignant
    diseases but have the responsibility for those with lymphoma and bone
    sarcoma. I am also shifting gears in research focus, from adults with
    lymphoma to children (and young adults) with lymphoma or sarcoma.

  • The focus of my research is epidemiological studies of children (and young
    adults) with lymphoma or solid tumors outside of the central nervous system.
    The aim is to use register data in combination with data from medical
    registers and biological data, when possible.
