Bio

I’m currently an assistant proffessor in Statistics at Department of Statistics, Uppsala University. Before Uppsala, I was a postdoc under Aki Vehtari at the Department of Computer Science at Aalto University, Finland. I hold a Ph.D. from Linköping University, Sweden, supervised by Mattias Villani. In 2019 I was awarded the Cramér prize for the best dissertation in Statistics and Mathematical Statistics in Sweden for my thesis Scalable and Efficient Probabilistic Topic Model Inference for Textual Data. I hold two research grants from the Swedish Research council and was recently awarded the Academy of Finland postdoctoral researcher grant.

I have a background as a statistician for the Swedish Agency for Education, the Swedish Agency for Crime Prevention, and the Swedish Agency for Public Health where I was working on education statistics, crime statistics and, public health.
