I am an analytically strong statistician and epidemiologist with extensive experience in working with statistics, epidemiology, and the Danish Health Registers. I started my career in psychiatry while being a student worker at a Research Unit for child and adolescent psychiatry in Aalborg. One year after finishing my master’s, I came to IBP where I became a PhD student with a thesis entitled “Genetic epidemiology of complex traits”. I have since worked my way up from research assistant to Research leader at IBP focusing on studies integrating genetics within epidemiology and register based studies.
