I recently became a PhD student here at Karolinska Institute where the focus of my project will be on the consequences of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) amongst patients in Sweden.
Prior to this I worked as a biostatistician at KEP working mostly on a project looking at morbidity and mortality for MS patients. I was also involved in some smaller scale projects on progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy and idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
I began working as a statistician directly after graduating from the master programme in Demography at the University of Southampton, after which I began work at University College London (UCL) in the United Kingdom.
The work was on the Natsal 3 (National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles) team where my main responsibilities were primarily on methodical projects, which focused on weighting techniques and the quality of estimates derived from non-probability web samples. In addition, I also worked with epidemiological studies, which included the investigation on sexual practices amongst the elderly in UK.
My previous work at Karolinska Institute gave me the inspiration for me to fully pursue a carreer in research. The first paper was looking into suicide amongst MS patients, which I found to be a very interesting topic and aided in my decision to pursue the subject of MS further and to apply for the PhD.
