Om mig

  • I am an epidemiologist with a doctoral degree in epidemiology from Harvard School of Public Health and postdoctoral training in chronic disease
    epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet. I received Docent in Epidemiology in 2018. My research focuses on the causes and consequences of chronic
    inflammatory diseases, including sarcoidosis and systemic lupus erythematosus, among others. My work aims to leverage the power of Swedish
    population-based registers and epidemiological methods to conduct large-scale investigations of risk factors and outcomes associated with these diseases. I have a team of students and researchers working together to find evidence-based answers to etiological and clinical questions using
    epidemiological and biostatistical methods.

  • *Sarcoidosis*
    I am currently the principal investigator of a multi-register data linkage project on sarcoidosis.

    *Systemic Lupus Erythematosus*
    My research focuses on quantifying risks of comorbidities associated with lupus and understanding the scope of the burden of disease. Several projects investigate risk factors for lupus.

    *Rheumatoid Arthritis*
    I began my career examining risk factors for rheumatoid arthritis using data from the Nurses' Health Studies. Since then, I have investigated adverse
    events associated with biological treatment in rheumatoid arthritis such as infection.
