Data administrator

Primary fields of research

As data administrator and project manager, my primary responsibility is anything that has to do with data, including the biological samples in the biobank CAMB

My main areas of responsibility are

  • data collection - among other things I set up programs to type data into, develop manuals to verify data from scanned questionnaires, plan projects and document data collection 
  • cleaning and merging of data into larger databases using the program SAS
  • administration of projects and permits - I pull out subsets of data or biological samples for specific analyses, coordinate between collaborators in different parts of the project, handle collaboration agreements and data safety regulations. 
  • analyses and SAS programming - I do statistical analyses and help with SAS programming problems.
  • guidance on choice of data for projects and application procedures.


Current research

I work on two projects:

  1. I am data administrator on the project CAMB, Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank, which is a large project headed by associate professor Rikke Lund and managed by Eva Jepsen.
    The project studies early aging in relation to biological markers of low grade inflammation.
    Data collection was in 2009 -2011, where 7200 middle-aged men and women answered a large questionnaire, and came in for physical tests, health assessments and gave blood samples to the biobank.
    My responsibility is anything that has to do with blood samples and data management and register linkage, but we are a group of people working together on this.

  2. I am project manager and data administrator on the project 'intelligence and health' headed by professor Merete Osler.
    The main part of this project is to convert military archive data from archive cards to an accessible database that will later be combined with Danish national registries containing health data to study how health varies with the IQ test results from military conscription.
    All conscription records from 1957 to 1977 are entered at the national archives, and I clean and combine the data into a database.
