Amalie Timmermann


I am an environmental epidemiologist studying effects of environmental exposures on child and maternal health using observational data from cohort studies and registries.

I focus my research on early life exposures and their effects on immune outcomes including asthma, infections, and responses to vaccines. Furthermore, I study the role of breastfeeding both as a route of environmental chemical exposure for infants, but also as a vulnerable function, which is affected by environmental exposures.

My research is based on both well-known and new epidemiological methods and statistical models – always with a focus on finding the best ways of striving towards causal inference.

I am part of the Early Life Environmental Epidemiology group: Early life Environmental Epidemiology – University of Copenhagen (
