Animal Welfare and Disease Control
Grønnegårdsvej 8, 1870 Frederiksberg C
My main research interests are in the application of quantitative epidemiology to problems affecting animal disease and production, including statistical and mathematical modelling of animal disease systems, appropriate consideration of diagnostic tests for evaluation of disease, and the use of stochastic modelling as a tool to understand the underlying processes of disease systems. These interests are supported by a combination of my veterinary background, statistical knowledge, experience of government advisory work, and programming skills, which have given me a unique insight into problems at the intersection between applied and theoretical aspects of epidemiology and quantitative biology. I also have extensive experience of applying computationally intensive statistical methods to problems within ecology and epi- demiology through ongoing collaboration with researchers from veterinary, medical and life science departments at a variety of research and governmental institutions in Denmark, the UK and worldwide. As a researcher working in the veterinary domain I receive funding grants from various relevant government, charity and livestock industry bodies.
