Research description

Doctoral project

The aim of my doctoral studies is to investigate the association between bereavement and the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and prognosis of CVD. The studies are based on national register data in Demark and Sweden. The linkages between several national registers have been established to obtain information on bereavement, diagnosis of CVD, and several covariates. 

 

Master program

My master program had focused on the health of adolescents, particularly suicide and mental health in adolescents. A cohort of approximately 12,000 adolescents was used this this project.
