CV

Katharina Roser studied mathematics at the University of Basel. From 2012 until 2015, she did her PhD in epidemiology at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) in Basel in the framework of the HERMES (Health Effects Related to Mobile phonE use in AdolescentS) project aiming to investigate whether the use or the radiation of mobile phones and other wireless communication devices impact the health and the behaviour of adolescents. Since 2016, she works as a Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Health Sciences and Medicine of the University of Lucerne. From July 2017 until June 2018, she worked in parallel as a scientific collaborator at the Cancer Registry of Central Switzerland on a project on the epidemiology of cancer in adolescents and young adults in Central Switzerland. From June until December 2019, she worked in parallel as a scientific collaborator at the Swiss National Science Foundation on a project investigating new features in one of the funding schemes for early career researchers. Since January 2020, she works on her own project entitled ”Adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivors: epidemiology and psychosocial health”. The project aims at providing a first detailed overview on the epidemiology of AYA cancer in Switzerland and giving a description of the psychosocial health of survivors of AYA cancer. The project will last three years.

 

CV Dr. Katharina Roser

Research

My overall research interests are the health and the behaviour of the population, especially adolescents and young adults, related to various kinds of exposures such as the environment or diseases. During my PhD, I investigated whether the use or the radiation of mobile phones and other wireless communication devices impact the health and the behaviour of Swiss adolescents. My current research focuses on children, adolescents and young adults with cancer and having survived cancer. My own project aims at providing a first detailed overview on the epidemiology of adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer in Switzerland and giving a description of the psychosocial health of survivors of AYA cancer. Furthermore, I am involved in projects on parents and grandparents of survivors of childhood cancer, and an international project investigating the effects of a follow-up care intervention on childhood cancer survivors in four European countries.
