Personal profile


I work highly interdisciplinary, focussing on health effects of environmental risk factors. I model environmental exposures in time and space, and carry out epidemiological studies, for example handling big data sets in the Danish registers.

I have a special interest for drinking water quality: Why and how much is our water polluted? What are the effects on the environment and on our health? What can we do to secure clean water and healthy aquatic environments for future generations?

Tools I use and teach others to use include R, python, GIS.
