About me

I am a board certified specialist in Hematology working part time as a clinician at the Hematology department at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna. In the clinic I see mainly patients with different types of lymphoma and acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Since 2017 I am a registered PhD-student working part time with research in the Cancer Epidemiology group at KEP.

Research description

My research focus on the most common aggressive lymphoma type; Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Based on data from the Swedish Lymphoma register I investigate survival and risk of relapse of DLBCL as well as outcome for the relapse patients. I also investigate timing and risk of cardiovascular events after a DLBCL diagnosis.
