I study associations of diet and other lifestyle factors with incidence of and prognosis after cancer. My main interests includes phytoestrogens, whole grain cereals, vitamin D, selenium and alternative treatment regimes. Most of my research is built on population-based cohort studies.

My research is within reproductive epidemiology with focus on the potential effects of prenatal and early life exposures on pubertal development, semen quality, fecundity and infertility. I conduct epidemiologic studies in large birth cohorts and nationwide registries using causal inference methods.

I study determinants of the transition from normal glucose control via pre-diabetes to diabetes and early complication stages at the population level. I have a special focus on longitudinal trajectory analyses, family/social networks, clustering of diabetic complications and application of AI.

We explore the importance of diet, lifestyle, and genetic susceptibility in health and disease including development of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer and total mortality. Most studies are based on data and biological material from Danish and international cohort studies.

My research is primariy on the influence of fetal exposure to lifestyle factors (especially caffeine), medicine or maternal chronic disease on offspring development and health and if chronic disease in children might influence their school performance, well being and risk of psychiatric morbidity.

My group investigates diet, particularly sustainable foods and dietary patterns, and alcohol intake in relation to cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer in the population. We also investigate how exposures in one generation are associated with adult health outcomes in subsequent generations.

I have two different areas of research. 1) Vaccine uptake and safety studies using both register-based and self-reported information and 2) reproductive epidemiology focusing on endometriosis and other underdiagnosed gynecological conditions as well as developmental origin of health and disease.

In my research domain, we focus on physical activity. The MOVE-group researches social presbring as a tool to ensure adherence to an actice lifestyle, and in RUNSAFE, we shed light on the etiology underpinning running-related injuries.
