About me

I am an epidemiologist with an interest in using registry data and electronic health records to assess causal inference in cancer-, cardiovascular-, and paharmaco-epidemiology. I am currently a postdoc working with Professor Miguel Hernán on several projects attempting to emulate target trials in Swedish registries. Prior to moving to the Karolinska Institutet, I worked at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), where my work primarily used data from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink to assess cardiovascular disease in cancer survivors.
