Deputy Head of Department. Researcher in social epidemiology, with a burning interest for all forms of social inequities in health and health care.
I am the Deputy Head of Department of Epidemiology and Global Health, and researcher in social epidemiology. Over the last few years I have grown particularly concerned with complex, or intersectional, inequities in the health system. My previous research has also been investigating, for example, explanations to social inequities in health, neighborhood effects on health, life course epidemiology, and stress research. I am originally a PhD in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (2008) and am appointed Docent in Public Health (2014).
As Chair of the Program Council for the Master Programs in Public Health (PRPH), I am responsible for our master’s program, and represent them in the Educational Strategic Board at the Faculty of Medicine. My teaching mostly concerns theory and methods at adavanced and doctoral levels, for example epidemiology, social epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, and philosophy of science. As former Program Coordinator (2020-2022) I have contributed to the development of the doctoral education program at the faculty of Medicine.
