About me

A methods oriented docent (Associate professor) of Epidemiology, I'm focused on ways of using epidemiological studies to provide information that will help patients and caregivers better understand chronic disease and disease course, and to make informed choices about therapeutic options.

As a coordinator at the Clinical Epidemiology Unit, I work in many projects in the Chronic Inflammatory Diseases research group, broadly divided in pharmacoepidemiological projects on treatments for rheumatic diseases and multiple sclerosis, and etiological studies with a focus on the familial aggregation of chronic inflammatory joint diseases. My research is funded by research grants from US-based Patient Centered Outcomes Institute (PCORI), a career grant from the Swedish Research Council, and the MS Research Foundation (MS-forskningsfonden). My work is also funded by several pharmaceutical companies through the Anti-Rheumatic Therapies In Sweden (ARTIS) project.
