My research is mainly epidemiological and focuses on understanding how social ineuqalities over the life course effect different health outcomes in later age.

Current research

  • Pre and post natal social adversity and inflammatory profiles and type two diabetes in later life

  • Maternal infections and inflammatory profiles among offspring in later life

  • Income drops over adult life and early signs of aging


I have participated in a number of courses as a lecturer at the University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Health Sciences, including Social Epidemiology, Psycho-Physiological Responses, Disease and Social Stressors, and Stress and Health. I am course leader for Life course influences on health and aging and the International Alliance of Research Universities summer school Interdisiplinary Aspects of Healthy Aging.
