I have enjoyed reading and learning for as
long as I can remember. In 2015 I started my PhD studies in vaccination epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet.
In 2016-2018 I had the opportunity to join the KI/Stockholm county research school for clinicians in epidemiology.
My PhD project is
conducted as a collaboration project between Karolinska Institutet and the
Public Health Agency of Sweden.
Associate professor Anna Nilsson is my main supervisor and my co-supervisor are
Phd epidemiologist Malin Kark and associate professor Adam Roth.
The project aims at:
- Validating the Swedish Vaccination Register
- Determining socioeconomic and medical risk factors for incomplete and untimely vaccination among Swedish infants
- Evaluating what effect incomplete or untimely vaccination will have on infectious disease morbidity in a high-covarage setting
