Epidemiologist and research coordniator at the Clinical Epidemiology Division, Department of Medicine Solna, Karolinska Insitutet.
After having worked as an intensive care nurse in Tehran, I did a Master of Science in Epidemiology at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, after which I worked a project manager for a national survey of HIV risk behaviors among injecting drug users in Iran. Then I moved to Lund where I did my PhD studies at Lund University. Durng my PhD, I also served as a project manager to create and run an international register for patients with haemophilia. After my PhD studies, I did a postdoc at the Centre for Primary Healthcare research (CPH), Lund University to investigate the state and determinants of mental health among immigrants in Sweden.
Over the past 10 years, I have worked on a range of research projects involving primary data sources (i.e.: National HIV surveillance surveys in Iran) and secondary data sources (e.g. systematic reviews and register-based studies). My main research interests so far have included psychosocial determinants of health and health of marginalized populations. In my current role, I will focus on register-based studies of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in general and pharmacoepidemiological studies in particular.
