I'm a postdoctoral research fellow at Lund University Diabetes Centre in Professor Marju Orho-Melander's research group (Diabetes and cardiovascular disease - genetic epidemiology). The overall aim of my research is to utilise detailed individual level data on genetic susceptibility, modifiable risk factors, and proteomic profiling to improve prediction and prevention of cardio-metabolic diseases and common cancers.
