Academic interests

My research interested is focused around chronic disease risk and reproductive biology. I am interested in using statistical models to understand the heterogeneity in human disease risk, and assessing the contribution from genetics and environment, both separately and in conjunction on disease risk and pregnancy outcomes. This includes using models for family relationships and geographical models to estimate disease risk in different family constellations and different parts of the country. 

A large part of my research has also been focused on methodology when studying reproductive biology and pregnancy health, including how to assess safety of medication use during pregnancy. This includes causal inference in large, population wide registries and genetic studies of pregnant woman, and assess later outcomes in the children depending on maternal use of medication etc. 

Courses taught

  • MF9380 (Guest lecture) 
  • NORBIS: Large genetic studies in biobanks: from registries screening, to interpretation of GWAS and beyond (Guest lecture)


I have a bachelor’s degree in mathematical biology from NTNU (2010) and a master’s degree in statistics from the same university (2012). I defended my PhD in genetic epidemiology at the medical faculty (UiO) in 2016, and have had different post-doc and research positions in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics since then.
