About me

  • The main focus of my research is to study how lifestyle factors such as
    physical activity, dietary intake and body weight are associated with
    different health outcomes. I received my doctorate at the Department of
    Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics in 2015 with the thesis "Physical
    activity, body mass index and prostate cancer: studies of risk, progression
    and mortality" [1]. During my time as a postdoc at the Harvard T.H. Chan
    School of Public Health, I deepened my knowledge in nutritional epidemiology,
    specifically focusing on physical activity. Today, I am an assistant
    professor at the Department of Clinical Epidemiology at the Department of
    Medicine Solna.

  • My research has two main focuses: (i) Nutritional epidemiology and (ii)
    *Nutritional epidemiology* –I study how physical activity dietary factors,
    dietary patterns, and weight control in relation to various health outcomes
    including for example kidney cancer, cardiovascular disease and Parkinson's
    *mHealth* – I have developed several different digital solutions that aim
    to promote healthy eating habits or physical activity. I run several large
    randomized intervention studies that evaluate the effect of the digital
    solutions targeting lifestyle within different patient groups.
