I am currently an assistant professor in Statistics at Department of Statistics, Uppsala University. Before Uppsala University, I was a postdoc under Aki Vehtari at the Department of Computer Science at Aalto University, Finland. I hold a PhD from Linköping University, Sweden, supervised by Mattias Villani and Marco Kuhlmann as co-supervisors. During my PhD, I was a guest researcher/PhD at Cornell University under David Mimno.

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 (Mining for meaning and Welfare state Analytics) and have been awarded the Academy of Finland postdoctoral researcher grant. I am also affiliated with the Institute for Analytical Sociology at Linköping University.

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.
