Research areas

 

As an Epidemiologist with an educational background in Public Health, my overall research interests focus on obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk in vulnerable populations. I have been particularly interested in understanding how early in life conditions translate into health and disease through the life course in vulnerable populations which has lead me to setup and function as PI on a birth cohort targeting these issues. Another key area of interest includes the epidemiology of diabetes and its complications among migrants, ethnic minorities and other vulnerable populations, which I have studied through linkage of national registers and clinical databases. I have extensive experience in setting up, implementing and analyzing data from observational studies, clinical trials and registers. I have spent several years coordinating and implementing larger research and public health projects abroad including long term stays in Ethiopia and Bolivia.
