Research description

My PhD research centers on exploring the genetic connection between idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs), a systemic rheumatic disease, and cancer. Additionally, I investigate how the presence of cancer affects the prognosis of individuals with IIM. To conduct these studies, I employ various methodologies such as population-based family investigations using Swedish registry data, cross-trait GWAS studies, and flexible parametric multistate modeling. My primary programming languages are SAS, with occasional use of R and Stata.
