Om mig

I am currently working as a research assistant at the Aging Research Centre (ARC) at Karolinska Institutet under Amaia Calderon Larrañaga. I am a medical doctor, and I have a Master's in Public Health Epidemiology from Karolinska Institutet. Before joining ARC, I have worked in tobacco control at World Health Organization - Jordan Country Office, as a regional coordinator at Framework Convention Alliance, a public health consultant at King Hussein Cancer Center, and a project officer at Global Research, Education and Advocacy for Community Health (REACH) Project. My master's thesis studied mortality and biochemical recurrence after curatively-treated localized prostate cancer under the supervision of Markus Aly and Alessio Crippa. My current project aims to assess the validity and feasibility of the Health Assessment Tool (HAT) for geriatric age group in primary healthcare. My interest areas are clinical epidemiology, urological epidemiology, decolonizing global health, tobacco control and learning about advanced statistical methods.
