Background and activities
I graduated from NTNU as a master student in Industrial Mathematics in 2014. I am now a PhD student in Biostatistics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences. My supervisor is Professor Mette Langaas.
My research interest is the extreme phenotype sampling design for genetic assocation studies, including likelihood methods for regression models and asymptotic association tests. I also work with stochastic models for tumor growth.
In my spare time I enjoy sports, cooking, reading and travelling.
