I'm affiliated with the Perinatal, Obstetric, and Pediatric Epidemiology (POPE) research group at Section of Epidemiology, Department of Public Health, lead by Professor Anne-Marie Nybo Andersen.
My primary research interests lies in between the fields of Sociology and Epidemiology, in particular social inequality in the life-course and intergenerational inequality. In my research, I focus on the early life stressors and their impact on later life (childhood, adolescence, young adults) with reference to parents and offspring, i.e. in an intergenerational perspective.
Currently I am involed in The European LifeCycle Project, a EU-funded Horizon2020-project across Europe, whose overarching concept is to establish the EU Child Cohort Network and conduct research on the role of novel integrated markers of early-life stressors that influence health across the lifecycle.
Specifically, I'm involved in multiple workpackages in LifeCycle, including the ones involving integration and harmonization of data in the Cohort Network, and the integration of early life stressors (e.g. socio-economic and lifestyle), and development of life-course cardio-metabolic health trajectories - each in collaboration with research groups across Europe.
Previously, I've been affiliated with research centres in Cambridge (UK), Glostrup (DK), and Copenhagen (DK) on a range of research projects. A general theme was social inequality in health - in regard to prevention, treatment and interventions using qualitative and quantitative analyses, respectively.
