About me

  • I am Professor of Biostatistics at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MEB) at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, where I’ve been employed since March 1999. I am deputy head of department, head of the MEB Biostatistics group, and programme director for the Master's programme in biostatistics and data science.


  • My primary research interests are developing and applying statistical methods for population-based studies of cancer patient survival, particularly the estimation and modeling of relative/net survival. I also have general interests in epidemiology, particularly cancer epidemiology.


  • I am programme director for the Master's programme in biostatistics and data science as well as course director and course teacher for courses within the programme.
