About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in psychiatric epidemiology at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MEB), and I have been employed by Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson since 2017 thanks to the Janssen-Karolinska partnership on real world evidence and translational research.

My PhD is partially funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under a Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant, which aims to investigate childhood and adolescent psychopathologies (CAPICE).

Research description

My research focuses on the etiology, outcomes and comorbidity of youth and adult depression, with the supervision of Sarah Bergen.

To address our research questions, I use data from several Swedish national registers.
