Research Engineer


I am a cancer epidemiologist with a particular interest in the aetiology of urological cancers. As part of my PhD I investigated the association between dietary intake and bladder cancer risk and recurrence. My current research post at the University of Lund focusses on adiposity and related metabolic factors in relation to prostate cancer risk and prognosis using data from several large-scale Swedish cohorts that are linked to nation-wide cancer registries.
