Profile

During the last nine years, my research has been focusing on physical activity in a public health perspective. That is, monitoring physical activity in everyday life (in large scale studies) as well as examining the health benefits of physical activity.  I have in-depth knowledge in planning and running clinical and epidemiological research projects as well as analyzing the data from these (and register studies).  

My current research focuses on profiling people’s health behavior (e.g. behaviors like: physical activity level, smoking status, alcohol consumption, nutrition status, use of the health care system, adherence to screening programs, participation in health checks etc.). Considering risk factor clustering, or ‘profiles’ of different health behaviors, will foster a better understanding about which set of joint behaviors needs to be simultaneously changed (or raised awareness about) in order to improve public health. I use novel statistical and epidemiological methods to scrutinize data on health behaviors of large scale populations, and to identify health behavior profiles.  

Other main focus areas are teaching and supervision of students enrolled at Aarhus University. In addition to course planning, I teach and supervise at all levels. Furthermore, I am an appointed examiner at the medical laboratory science program (University College) and the public health program (University).
