Primary fields of research
My primary research interests are in how early life conditions affect the health and well-being of fetuses, children and adolescents, and epidemiological issues involved when investigating this.
Co-Principal Investigator of the 18-years follow-up in the Danish National Birth Cohort, and Principal Investigator of the EATus research programme: Disordered EATing behaviors and eating disorders during adolescence - understanding severity, course and etiology - EATus.
Data from the Danish National Birth Cohort and the nationwide registries constitute the foundation of the EATus research programme. I am further involved in various other research projects exploiting these data sources to address how prenatal and early life exposures are related to neurodevelopment outcomes in children and mental health outcomes in adolescents.
