Background and activities

PhD candidate at K.G. Jebsen Center for Genetic Epidemiology.

In my work, I aim to discover novel genetic risk factors for complex traits by combining genetic and phenotypic data from the Trøndelag Health Study (HUNT), other population-based biobanks and electronic health records. I also explore causal relationships using methods for genetically informed causal inference. My main methodologies are genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and Mendelian randomization.

I’m affiliated with the research group for epidemiology and medical statistics.
