Primary fields of research
I am a psychologist and researcher in the field of reproductive health including psychosocial consequences of infertility, pregnancy loss, use of assisted reproduction and childlessness; family formation and childbearing decision-making; and fertility awareness and education. I have a particular interest in conducting qualitative and mixed-methods research that has implications for intervention development and clinical practice in public health, health care and psychology.
Specifically, I conduct research that provides information on how to reduce the negative mental health consequences of infertility, pregnancy loss and childlessness on women and couples and to promote informed and satisfying fertility decision-making in reproductive-aged men and women.
At the University of Copenhagen I am part of the Reproductive Health research group in the Section of Social Medicine led by Professor Lone Schmidt.
