During the coming years I will conduct research exploring the importance of workplace resources for employee health and wellbeing. Though this research area is hardly a new one, I aspire to contribute with a greater emphasis on the application of causal models and longitudinal modeling to better determine causal relations between psychosocial workplace resources, strains, wellbeing and health. This task will be carried out in close collaboration with researchers from the University of Copenhagen, the National Research Institute of the Working Environment, Bispebjerg University Hospital, as well as new and continuing international collaborations in Finland, Sweden, UK, and France.
Further, I have great interest in the importance of sleep for preserving health – the topic of my PhD, which focused on potential mechanisms linking impaired sleep to cardiovascular disease.
I am also very much involved in the epidemiology teaching at the University. Among other, I have contributed to the Master's level course in epidemiology at education of Public Health Science since 2012, being the course responsible in 2018. From 2019 I will take on the course leadership of the introductory epidemiology course for Bachelor students in Health and Informatics. In addition, I regularly supervise students in internships, undergraduate and thesis projects and am currently the a co-supervisor of two PhD projects.
