About me

PhD student at KEP (Clinical Epidemiology/Department of Medicine Solna, KI) interested in drug safety.

Research description

I conduct pharmacoepidemiological studies, mainly assessing risks associated with the use of drugs in rheumatoid arthritis. I am interested in the use of causal inference methods to obtain valid effect estimates from observational data. In my current research I use inverse probability weighting to study the interplay of biological and non-biological rheumatoid arthritis treatments in causing adverse effects.

Teaching portfolio

I am a teaching assistant in the Advanced course in SAS programming for health care data, held at KI.
