About me

  • Postdoctoral researcher in perinatal and pediatric epidemiology, Clinical
    Epidemiology Division, Department of Medicine (Solna).
    Karolinska Institute, PhD in Epidemiology, October 2021
    Stockholm University, Master in Public Health, June 2014

  • My broad scientific interests include perinatal and pediatric epidemiology,
    developmental origins of health and disease, and social determinants of
    heath. Building on life course epidemiology, my research focuses on how
    perinatal social and biological disadvantages influence future disease risks
    and health inequalities over the life course and across
    generations. Currently, I am working with Dr. Neda Razaz on a project aiming
    to investigate the role of maternal cardiovascular diseases in the
    developmental origins of long-term offspring health outcomes.
