About me

  • As a physician, I worked on projects evaluating influenza vaccines for children in Bangladesh during 2011-2014. Following my Master's (2016) and doctoral (PhD) degrees (2021) in epidemiology from KI (with a doctoral thesis on "Suicidal behaviour and healthcare use among refugees"), I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience (2021-2024) and the Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine (2024-ongoing).


  • I am interested in epidemiological methods, infectious disease epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology, psychiatric epidemiology and migration research. I am involved in the following ongoing projects:
    1. Register-based evaluation of the pediatric vaccination program for the 15-valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV15) in Sweden

    2. AFA youth (Depression/anxiety syndrome and sick leave among young workers in the private sector - patterns and the importance of work environment factors)
    3. AFA Alcohol (To what extent stressful life events or worsening mental health can trigger hazardous alcohol use among moderate alcohol users, and which sociodemographic, psychosocial, work-related and psychological factors predict the risk of transitioning into hazardous alcohol consumption)
