Research Areas

Along with my clinical career as a neurosurgeon, I am running a research group focusing on epidemiology- and genetic research of neurosurgical diseases using the Danish nationwide registers and bio banks. The research groups bridges the neurosurgical clinical environment with research departments at Statens Serum Institut. I have supervised younger researchers in their bachelor- and master thesis projects, postgraduate researchers and currently I am supervising two PhD students enrolled at the PhD School at University of Copenhagen.
