Research Areas

My main areas of research are
• the epidemiology of human papillomavirus-associated cancers, most notably the non-cervical anogenital HPV-associated cancers
• sexual health epidemiology with particular focus on the interplay between sexual health and well-being and general physical and mental health,
• the epidemiology of autoimmune diseases, particularly rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, inflammatory bowel diseases and multiple sclerosis.

I am the PI of Project SEXUS, a large, prospective population-based cohort study aimed to shed light on the sexual health and well-being of the Danish population as well as on the poorly understood interplay between sexual health and ill-health on one side and general physical and mental health on the other.
