Postdoctoral researcher

About me

As a physician, I worked 3 years in projects aimed at improving child and adolescent health in Bangladesh. Following my Master degree in Public Health Sciences (Epidemiology) in 2016 at Karolinska Institutet, I joined Ellenor Mittendorfer-Rutz’ research group (MENTE- Mental Health and Social Integration) as a doctoral (PhD) student in 2017. Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the MENTE research group and my projects aim at investigating the associations between migration status, social marginalisation and suicidal behaviour, with a specific focus on refugees.
