Naima Kayser Leeoza
My intellectual curiosity about health and my passion for medical research is what led me to do entirely research-based graduations. However, my interest in public health research is long-standing. Both my graduation and post-graduation involved training in handling and analysing large-scale registry dataset using statistical software, result interpretation and presenting the work in oral and written form.
I am currently working on SWEOLD 2021 protect under the supervision of professor Carin Lennartsson at Aging Research Centre, Department of Neurobiology, Caring Sciences and Society (NVS). The tasks are mainly related to the survey on the living conditions of older people - SWEOLD. I am doing quality review, data compilation and present SWEOLD 2021 data, as well as do literature search, statistical analysis and interpretation of results. In addition to that, my tasks will also include supporting and assisting researchers with analysable data and qualified statistical analysis, as well as more routine research tasks, administration, and tasks related to the education that the researchers in the group conduct.
I am also working as a coordinator in the Social inequalities in ageing (SIA) network. It is an extension network of the former SIA project, which was one of five projects to get funded under the call for Nordic research projects on the inequitable distribution of health and welfare by NordForsk in 2015. In 2022, a 3- year network grant on Social Inequalities in Ageing was awarded from the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte) to run this network support. The new network support enables an essential continuation of the capacity building in social ageing research that we have implemented within the SIA programme.
Alongside, I administrate masters course "Public Health Sciences—Concepts and Theories" linked to the Masters in Public health Science Programme directed by Professor Janne Agerholm and a couple of PhD level courses directed by Neda Agahi and Janne Agerholm.
