My primary working area is monitoring and control of zoonoses, ie. diseases transmissible between animals and humans. Denmark has a long history of zoonoses monitoring and control and many monitoring data from the entire food chain from farm to fork. In my work I collate and interpret these data for the use in the attempts to reduce the number of people who get sick from food-borne infections such as Salmonella and Campylobacter.


I summarize and process the data and use the results for example. to provide advice to authorities in connection with the establishment and adjustment of action plans against zoonoses and evaluation of action plans. Data from zoonoses are also a key data source in the department's research.


My research is on risk factors for zoonoses in humans and domestic animals and methods for prevention and control of these infections. The research includes eg. risk assessment and a variety of epidemiological methods, including case-control studies.


Finally, I work with the tracing of sources of foodborne outbreaks in humans.

Expertise

Responsible for the scientific area: zoonosis epidemiology, at the Danish Zoonosis Centre. A significant part of this is establishment and adjustments of surveillance and control programmes for zoonoses in the feed-food continuum (primarily Salmonella and Campylobacter ), and interpretation and reporting of the occurrence of zoonoses, nationally and internationally.

Advisory services to the authorities and risk assessments of bacteria in animal feed, production animals, food and humans. Identification of risk factors (e.g. regression analysis) and control options for zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance mainly in humans and production animals, including zoonosis control in alternative husbandry production.

Applications, planning and conduction of research projects, conduction of questionnaire studies. Collection, extraction, handling and descriptive and statistical/epidemiological analysis of surveillance and research data.  Investigation of foodborne outbreaks in humans.
