About me

I am currently completing my medical internship (allmäntjänstgöring, AT) at Örebro University Hospital while simultaneously pursuing a PhD in Epidemiology and Health Economics at Örebro University under the supervision of Prof. Jonas F Ludvigsson (KI). I have been affiliated to the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Karolinska Institutet since I transferred from there to Örebro University upon accepting a position as a medical intern at Örebro University Hospital in 2020. Moreover, I am also a member of the Global Shapers Community, and a member of Global Utmaning (a Swedish think-tank) where I serve as an advisor in the committee on health and wellbeing.

More information about my professional experiences is available on LinkedIn.

Research description

The aim of my current research is to explore medical and economic outcomes in patients with chronic inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases, including celiac disease, eosinophilic esophagitis and microscopic colitis. This is done through large-scale epidemiological studies by utilizing data from nationwide registries from the Swedish health system. The research is carried out as part of a doctoral degree at Örebro University, supervised by Prof. Jonas F Ludvigsson, in collaboration with researchers from Karolinska Institutet, University of Gothenburg, Colombia University and Harvard University.

Prior to my ongoing research, I have also pursued epidemiological research within cardiovascular disease, thrombotic disease and colorectal cancer in parallel to my medical studies - all at Karolinska Institutet.
