My qualifications are BSc Food Science & Industry, MSc Public Health, MSc Food & Nutrition, and PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health. As part of my doctoral studies (2012-17), I studied the Nutrition Transition and the Double Burden of Malnutrition in Indonesia.

I have several years of work experience in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural research projects in Sweden (Salut Child-Health Intervention Program, 2009-10 and 2017-18; ETICS-Diet: Exploring the Iceberg of Celiacs, 2010-12; Poor Health and School Achievement 2017-18) and South-East Asia (EPI4 Project 2011-12: Evidence to Policy Implementation). Since 2015, I have collaborated with the Department of Social and Behavioral Science, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health; SAPHIR NETWORK, the Scientific Association for Public Health in Iran; and the Global Burden of Disease at the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), University of Washington and recently join the Norrland's Observatory for Equity in Health and Health Care (NOEHHC) at Umeå University.

I am currently working as a postdoc in the Department of Epidemiology and Global Health and in the Department of Social Work. My research interests lie within the social and contextual determinants of health and health inequalities, gender and social capital, child and adolescents' health and educational achievement.

Most importantly, my passion for academia has taught me many more than just building a career. I extremely enjoy teaching and interacting with students, collaborating and developing relations with researchers, and constantly challenging and improving my knowledge!
