About me

  • I am a board certified specialist in Hematology working part time as a
    clinician at the Hematology department at Karolinska University Hospital in
    Solna. In the clinic I see mainly patients with different types of lymphoma
    and acute lymphoblastic leukemia. I defended my thesis with the title: "
    Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma: population-based studies of relapse and
    cardiac complications in March 2023.
    PhD Karolinska Institutet 2023
    Specialist in Hematology 2018
    Research School for Clinicians in Epidemiology 2015-2017
    MD Karolinska Institutet 2007


  • My research focus on the most common aggressive lymphoma type
  • Diffuse large
    B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Based on data from the Swedish Lymphoma register I
    investigate survival and risk of relapse of DLBCL as well as outcome for the
    relapse patients. I also investigate timing and risk of cardiovascular events
    after a DLBCL diagnosis.
