Primary fields of research
My primary field of research concerns alcohol, smoking, mental disorders (including alcohol use disorders), intelligence, and changes in cognitive ability and cognitive aging. Methodologically I have primarily carried out quantitative epidemiologic research both as a student assistant and since I graduated as a Master of Science in Public Health in 2014.
The aim of my PhD project is to examine the complex association between cognitive ability and alcohol use disorders. The aim will be investigated both in a large register-based study of intelligence as a risk factor for development of alcohol use disorders and various admission patterns, as well as in a follow-up study, LiKO-15 (“Lifestyle- and Cognition Follow-up 2015”), collecting data that will be used to clarify the influence of alcohol and alcohol use disorders on changes in cognitive ability in my project.
I am employed by the Unit of Medical Psychology at Section of Environmental Health, and affiliated to the “Phenotypes in Alcohol Use Disorders” (PAUSE) research programme and Center for Healthy Aging (CEHA). My PhD project received a PhD scholarship from the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and furthermore, the LiKO-15 project is financed by a grant from the Danish Council for Strategic Research to the PAUSE-project.
