Associate Professor

Member of:

  • Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research

My focus area is cholera, water, sanitation, hygiene, and the transmission of diarrheal diseases. Currently, most of my work is related to Bangladesh, but many of the theories depart from our investigations of the 1853 cholera outbreak in Copenhagen. I am currently heading the disasters and environmental hygiene research group at the section of Global health in the Department of Public health. I have previously linked my environmental health profile with my interest in disasters through my position as Director of the Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research, COPE, and Head of Studies for the Master of Disaster Management program (MDMa), which I co-created in 2008.

My core area is Environmental Hygiene; mainly water and sanitation, as well as the transmission of hygiene-related diseases (such as cholera and other diarrheal diseases) during disastrous events and in developing countries.
