About me

  • Marika Ström joined Medical Statistics Unit (Medstat) at the Department of
    Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME) as a statistician in
    april 2023 where she works with statistical consultation and teaching.
    She defended her thesis at the Respiratory Medicine Unit at the Department of
    Medicine Solna. Her thesis involved studies of subphenotypes of asthma and
    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) caused by smoking as well as
    caused by preterm birth. She developed an R package and workflow for applying
    the multivariable method OPLS (orthogonal projections for latent structures)
    for selecting biomarkers from omics data. Her aim was to unravel the
    mechanisms related to the subphenotypes with the long term goal to find
    diagnostics and therapeutics for the diseases.
    She has long experience from process development in the pharmaceutical
    industry optimizing chemical processes of active pharmaceutical ingredients
    through experimental design, automation and validation.
    Her toolbox includes statistics and bioinformatics using R and SIMCA
    including analysis on high-performance computer clusters.
    Ph.D. in Medical Science at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden, October
    Master of Sciences in Chemical Engineering at the Royal Institute of
    Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, Februari 1993
