    Primary fields of research

    Environmental Epidemiology (air pollution, noise, urbanicity, green-space)

    - long-term expsoure to air pollution and breast cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, asthma (children and elderly), COPD, lung cancer, brain cancer

    - short-term exposure to air pollution (time-series and case-crossover studies) and COPD, asthma, cardiovascular disease, mortality

    - long-term exposure to road traffic noise and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, breast cancer

    - long-term exposure to wind turbine noise and cardiovascular disease

    Mammographic Breast Density and Breast cancer Risk Factors

    - Determinants of mammographic density and breast cancer (smoking, physical activity, alcohol consumption, air pollution, traffic noise)

    Occupational Epidemiology

    - Health effects related to shift and night shift work (diabetes, mortality, cardiovascular disease, dementia)

    Current research

    - Hyperion Project - Long-term exposure to road traffic noise and risk of breast cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke: the Danish Nurse Cohort study

    - Physical activity, air pollution and incidence of myocardial infarction: Danish Diet, Health, and Cancer cohort

    - Combined effects of physical activity and diabetes: Danish Nurse Cohort and Danish Diet, Health, and Cancer cohort

    - HRT use, mammographic density, and breast cancer risk: Danish Diet, Health, and Cancer cohort

    - Physical activity and mammographic density in Danish Diet, Cancer and Health cohort
