About me

  • Docent in epidemiology at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, where I have been working since 2014. I have a background in social sciences (sociology), and a PhD in public health epidemiology.


  • My research area is within psychiatric and reproductive epidemiologi, with a specific focus to understand the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders.

    We are aiming to identify potential prenatal and early-life causes of neurodevelopmental disorders, based on large population-based registers and surveys. In order to account for unmeasured confounding from genetic and environmental factors, these studies are mainly based on genetically informative designs, such as sibling comparisons.


  • My competence and current teaching activities are within the fields of epidemiology, scientific research methodology, and public health sciences. I have experience of teaching at undergradutate-, graduate and postgraduate level, mainly within the Doctoral programme in Epidemiology, the Medical Programme, and the Master’s Programme in Public Health Epidemiology, all at Karolinska Institutet.

    I have acquired experience from several forms of instruction, including:
    • Lecturer
    • Seminar leader
    • Workshop leader
    • Examiner of master thesis, written assignments and oral presentations
    • Individual supervision of students in their degree projects
    • Lab
    • Online-based teaching

    I have experience of teaching both in Swedish and English.
