Om mig

  • I am a PhD student in Ingrid Kockum's research group, mainly under Xia
    Jiang's supervision. In my PhD project, I bend my efforts to genetic
    epidemiology. The title of my research project is "Using larger-scale genetic
    data and complied analytical strategy to understand the etiology and sex
    disparity of multiple sclerosis". I use extensive genetic information, as
    well as publicly available Genome-Wide Association Study summary statistics
    on modifiable environmental exposures, to assess a putative causal
    relationship and shared genetic component between risk factors and multiple
    sclerosis (MS).


  • Currently, I'm mainly involved in the following projects:
    1) Understand the role of hormonal exposure and risk of multiple sclerosis
    - a population-based approach and a genome-wide cross-trait analysis
    (polycystic ovarian syndrome, sex hormones, and risk of MS)
    2) A genome-wide cross-trait analysis between modifiable lifestyle factors
    and multiple sclerosis (obesity and MS, body mass index, waist-to-hip
    3) A genome-wide cross-trait analysis between nutritional exposure and
    multiple sclerosis (vitamin D and MS)
    4) A genome-wide cross-trait analysis between multiple sclerosis and its
    neurological comorbidities (depression, anxiety, and MS)
