Peter Kjær Mackie Jensen

Associate Professor

Through my position as Director of the Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research, COPE, I have gained a large network and am connected with many disaster researchers working at University of Copenhagen. Before COPE was established, I was Head of Studies for the Master of Disaster Management programme (MDMa), which I co-created in 2008. The interdisciplinary connections I have made through my work with MDMa and COPE now manifest themselves in the variety of my current research interests.


Current research:


Primary research

My core area is Environmental Hygiene; mainly water and sanitation, as well as the transmission of hygiene-related diseases (such as cholera and other diarrheal diseases) during disasterous events and in developing countries.
