I joined the Systems Disease Immunology group in May 2017 and will work on the role of autoantibodies to GPCR’s in human disease etiologies.

I have previous postdoc experience from DTU Food, where I analyzed the development of the gut microbiota development in a large Danish cohort of 0-3 year old infants/toddlers and from KU, where I compared early life CNS development in prematurely and maturely born piglets.

I am very interested in the data driven approach and have solid experience in large scale data analysis by e.g. multivariate and bioinformatical methods.

My PhD work was performed at the Psychiatric University Hospital in Århus, where I used the Chronic Mild Stress rat model to pattern molecular brain patterns of possible relation to depression and anti-depressant drug resistance.

Further, I also have professional experience from drug adverse event handling from a position as Medical Advisor at Lundbeck and data scientist experience from working at the Wunderman agency in Copenhagen.
