I am a PhD student at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. My research focuses on the genetics and biomarkers of frailty.
I am currently affiliated to the National Graduate School on Ageing and Health (SWEAH).
Using twin methods and molecular epidemiological approaches, the overall aim of my doctoral project is to gain understanding on the quantitative genetics, epigenetics, metabolomics and biomarkers of frailty and to unravel their sex-specific roles as risk factors for frailty from adulthood into old age. I am also working on projects to develop frailty scores based on electronic health records, which can potentially be applied in clinical settings to facilitate risk stratification.
