My education is a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Iceland (UI) and a M.Sc. in Economics also from UI. My previous work experience includes working as a macroeconomist at the Icelandic Ministry of Finance, as a project manager for a pharmaceutical company in Iceland and latest as a department manager for project management in an aluminium plant also in Iceland. I have a big family with three children and cycling is a big part of my life. The aim with my NIASC project is to use statistical modelling to predict the risk of prostate cancer and thereby help to improve current prostate cancer screening. In my first study I will study how PSA testing intervals influence the outcome of cancer and the probability of negative biopsies using data from the STHLM0 study which is a register data on men in Stockholm county. For my second study I will use data from the STHLM3 study to develop statistical methods for comparing the new biomarker test from STHLM3 study to the PSA test. In my third study I will investigate the cost-effectiveness of different prostate cancer screening scenarios in Iceland using a microsimulation model from Andreas Karlsson and Mark Clements. My supervisors are Martin Eklund, Associate Professor at KI, Mark Clements, Associate Professor at KI, Laufey Tryggvadóttir, Clinical Professor at UI and Henrik Grönberg, Professor at KI. I am working at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm cooperating with the Icelandic Cancer Society and UI
