Since 2016, I have been involved in and leading numerous clinical, epidemiological, and experimental research projects in collaboration with different departments, researchers, and research groups.

 

My interest is broadly based, which is reflected by my involvement in research in both cardiac procedures and complications as well as basic research and physiology of the heart and vasculature.

Currently ongoing projects

As part of my affiliation to the Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery at Aarhus University Hospital, I am currently involved in and leading a number of research projects.
