I have a combined employment, performing cancer epidemiology research together with clinical work at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet and Theme Cancer, Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset, respectively. My specialist training in medical oncology was completed in February 2018 and I am currently employed as medical oncologist with a focus on upper gastrointestinal malignancies at Theme Cancer, Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset, Huddinge.
The primary focus of my research is in cancer epidemiology with an emphasis on sex differences in cancer incidence and survival. I handle big volumes of data by linking multiple Swedish population-based health and demographic registers with high national coverage. This enables robust analyses of trends over different time axis. I apply state-o-the-art statistical methods to more accurately describe and illustrate research findings to, in the long run, make clinical inferences. I apply a relative survival framework when estimating cancer mortality and flexible parametric models when quantifying survival differences between groups. I am particularly interested in developing interactive, pedagogic tools for presenting my research findings.
Throughout my oncology residency I have been committed to teaching and leading seminars in clinical oncology as a part of the medical education at Karolinska Institutet. In 2017/2018 I held a teaching position to coordinate and plan the education in palliative care for medical students as a part of the course in clinical oncology. I am responsible for the oncology rotation at the upper gastrointestinal department at Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset, Huddinge. I am currently director of studies at the KI/SLL Research School in Epidemiology for Clinicians, generation 19 (2020-2021).
