Om mig

I am an epidemiologist with a background in public health and a strong interest in social inequalities over the life course. I am experienced in social, reproductive, and cancer epidemiology and am a part of the Reproductive Epidemiology group (Olof Stephansson) at the Department of Medicine.

My research career to date falls under the overarching theme of women’s health, including: social inequalities in health, social determinants of health, life course epidemiology, reproductive epidemiology and cancer epidemiology. I am experienced in data management and contemporary epidemiological methods for data analysis, including extensive use of Swedish register data and longitudinal data sets.


Within the reproductive epidemiology group I work on a number of projects, including how the organisation of healthcare influences safety during childbirth, and maternal and infant outcomes.
