Enthusiastic postdoc in Nutritional & Environmental Epidemiology, I'm mainly working on cohort & register-based epidemiology (Real World Data) with a special focus on early-life determinants of metabolic & allergic diseases. My ambition is to be part of the multi-stakeholder approach needed to prevent non-communicable diseases. The most important for me is to feel that what I am doing can benefit the society, and especially women and children’s health.
As a postdoc at the perinatal, obstetric and paediatric epidemiology (POPE) group, I am mainly working with data from the Dansish National Birth Cohort (DNBC) as part of the RealCHILD project which examines how indoor and housing environmental factors influence childhood health and diseases.
My core skills and interests are centered around maternal and child health, lifecourse approach to understand long-term health consequences of nutritional & environmental determinants of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and global health. I also have a keen interest in epidemiological methodology including causal inference approaches.
I particularly enjoy the process of transcribing research results into well-structured manuscripts as well as developing new project ideas, scientific writing and grant applications.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Applied Sciences in Geneva, Switzerland. In 2012, I graduated from a dual Erasmus Mundus master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Sheffield and the University of Copenhagen. I hold a PhD degree (2019) from the University of Copenhagen which was performed at the Parker Institute/Institute of Preventive Medicine - Frederiksberg Hospital. The PhD project examined the impact of nutrition in early life on the development of both gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes in adulthood, using national registries and biobanks.
