About me

  • PhD, Karolinska Institutet, 2021
    MD, Karolinska Institutet, 2016


  • During my doctoral research period, I mainly focused on women with increased
    hereditary risk of breast cancer who underwent risk-reducing mastectomy and
    immediate breast reconstruction up to 20 years ago. We specifically studied
    the long-term health-related quality of life, anxiety and depressive
    symptoms, body image, sexuality, and satisfaction with the reconstructive
    outcome from the women and their partners' perspective, and from a
    more objective perspective using three-dimensional image analysis. I was
    honoured to defend my thesis [1] on the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness
    Month 2021. Currently I am focusing on applying my experiences with
    patient-reported outcomes and three-dimensional imaging with an aim to
    improve patient care and planning of individualised treatment options in the
    clinical setting. Other professional interests are teaching and learning in
    higher education as well as creating medical illustrations.
