Primary fields of research

My key competences are to combine the fields of public health and psychology in research projects. My scientific main interest lies within the field of developmental psychology with a particular focus on developmental milestones and the associations with intelligence and personality. Methodologically I use epidemiology to conduct studies based on birth cohorts and registers. I have a special focus on the Copenhagen Perinatal Cohort from 1959-61.
