I am currently employed as senior researcher at DEFACTUM, Central Denmark Region & Section of Clinical Social Medicine & Rehabilitation, Dept. of Public Health, University of Aarhus, Denmark. My primary work tasks consist of initiating, designing, applying funding for, conducting and communicating research on work and health in the broadest of terms, with a special focus on sickness absence and return to work, and on associations between risk factors in youth and adolescence for future health and work life trajectories. I work primarily with quantitative data, with my primary expertise being on register data: I have been involved in various studies combining social transfer payment data with large national survey data. I have also worked with clinical data, cross national data and evaluations of interventions, and been involved in systematic reviews within the Cochran and Campbell frameworks.
