Om mig

  • I’m a genetic epidemiologist with a special interest in studying the
    etiology of complex traits and diseases. Currently, I’m an Assistant
    Professor employed by the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska
    Institute, as part of which, I design and execute genetic epidemiological
    studies on complex phenotypes.
    2011-2015 PhD student, Karolinska Institute (IMM)
    2016-2018 Postdoctoral Fellow, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
    2018-2019 Research Associate, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
    2020- further Assistant Professor, Karolinska Institute (CNS)


  • My early work was focused on understanding the etiology of rheumatoid
    arthritis, a complex inflammatory autoimmune disease with both environmental
    triggers and genetic components involved. I explored disease etiology through
    association analysis, gene-environment interactions and polygenic risk
    prediction models leveraging on the abundant genetic and questionnaire data
    collected by national registries and large-scale population-based
    case-control studies.
    To pursue further training in advanced methods for genomic epidemiology,
    e.g., multi-omics data, I started my postdoctoral training at Harvard T.H.
    Chan School of Public Health in 2016.
    Mendelian randomization on risk factors and chronic disease is a line of
    research I began to work on and hope to expand in the coming years.
