In 2008 she completed her Master’s degree in Public Health, at the University of Copenhagen. Since 2011 she has been at Bispebjerg Frederiksberg Hospital Syncope Center/Coordinating Research Center. She has participated in every aspect of the departments self-initiated studies; from the idea stage, the design, the management of the study and finally analyzing and co-writing the articles. The autonomic nervous system and suspected side-effects to the HPV vaccination has been her primarily focus.
