About me

I am an MD, currently a medical intern (forskar-AT) at Södersjukhuset and a PhD student at the Clinical Epidemiology Unit at Karolinska institutet. 

My PhD project is focused on novel approaches for prediction of postpartum hemorrhage, the number one cause of maternal mortality and morbidity world-wide. For the project we will be using modern statistical methods and rigorous databases from the Pregnancy Register, the Medical Birth Register and the Stockholm Gotland Obstetric cohort to analyze temporal trends and risk factors with the overall aim of improved prediction of postpartum hemorrhage.
