Personal profile


I am employed as a researcher in Big Data and my main skills are handling, validation, quality assurance and exploitation of large databases and epidemiological register research. I contribute to the rest of the research group with optimization and utilization data basis for epidemiological registry research and modeling. Also in relation to the antibiotic resistance research at DTU-Vet, I contribute to a number of research projects.

I also have skills at senior level in antimicrobial resistance- and pharmaco-epidemiology. I have worked in particular with resistance epidemiology and worked as a national expert. VetStat, and developed state-of-the-art methods for benchmarking and monitoring antibiotics for domestic animals used internationally; As a senior researcher in resistance epidemiology at DTU-Food, I have previously advised the Danish Food Agency for the development of Yellow Card and internationally, she has worked as an adviser for, among other things, ESVAC project [1] and methods of monitoring antibiotic consumption under EFSA [2].

Finally, I have qualifications in Quantitative Genetics (from my PhD) education and are, among other things, a specialist censor at KU Health in Animal Genetics.

I have been employed on the Disease Database Project since 2015, on a special grant under the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. The purpose of the project is to provide a continuous overview of laboratory data from both DTU Vet and private actors; on the one hand, to carry out epidemiological register research based on disease databases and related databases and advise the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration for the management of endemic diseases and antibiotic resistance. In 2015-2017 it has resulted in a series of reports, notes and publications [3-19]

As an example of planned research projects, which are also central to the government service, is an ongoing project concerning risk factors for flock treatment against piglets, and a planned project for 2018, effects of Yellow Card on crew level.
