About me

I am a clinical oncologist, certified by the National Board of Health (2015), Sweden. Since 2015, I work at the Pediatric Oncology Unit, Karolinska University Hospital. Here I see children with all kinds of malignant diseases but have the responsibility for those with lymphoma and bone sarcoma. I am also shifting gears in research focus, from adults with lymphoma to children (and young adults) with lymphoma or sarcoma. 

Research description

The focus of my research is epidemiological studies of children (and young adults) with lymphoma or solid tumors outside of the central nervous system. The aim is to use register data in combination with data from medical registers and biological data, when possible. 

Teaching portfolio

Director of Research School in Epidemiology for clinicians, generation 18 (2019-2021). Ongoing teaching assignments for later generations of the Research school and the annual national course on pediatric oncology (SK kurs) for residents in pediatrics.
