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 large volumes of data by linking several Swedish registers with high national coverage. This enables robust analyses of trends over different time axis. I apply a relative survival framework when estimating cancer mortality.
I am particularly interested in developing interactive, pedagogic tools for presenting my research findings.
Throughout my residency I have been committed in teching and leading seminars in clinical oncology as a part of the medical education at Karolinska Institutet. 2017/2018 I was responsible for coordinating and planning the education in palliative care for medical students as a part of the course in clinical oncology.
