About me

Postdoctoral researcher in reproductive and perinatal epidemiology, Division of Clinical Epidemiology, Department of Medicine (Solna).

Managing editor, European Journal of Public Health, Department of Global Public Health.

Research description

My research builds on life course epidemiology and focuses on how risk factors in early life (e.g., parental socioeconomic conditions, maternal health, and fetal growth rate) influence future health and health inequalities over the life course and across generations. Currently, I am working with Neda Razaz on a project aiming to investigate the role of maternal cardiovascular diseases in the developmental origins of long-term offspring health outcomes.
