Research description

At KI, I have been part of a multidisciplinary research group interested in different aspects of epidemiology of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). My research addresses important questions facing patients, physicians and researchers with an aim to forge understanding of mechanisms behind risk of developing MS and progression of physical disability and cognitive impairment in MS. My aim has been to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations between researchers, patients and clinicians through several national and international projects. 

The objective of my research at KI is focused around three aims:

  • Explore genetic, environmental, clinical and lifestyle risk factors for developing MS and disease worsening;
  • Using artificial intelligence (AI) to assist in early detection of individuals at high risk of developing MS;
  • Develop and validate clinical decision tools for early identification of individuals with MS at high risk of disability worsening and treatment failure.
