PhD in Health Sciences (2018) from University of Southern Denmark. I currently work as a postdoc in the MOBILIZE project which aims to improve health in people with multiple chronic conditions through tailored exercise therapy and self-management.
In my PhD project, together with a multidisciplinary and international team, I investigated the effect of exercise on knee joint cartilage. Contrary to the common belief of people with, and health professionals treating, knee osteoarthritis, we found that exercise does not harm knee joint cartilage nor trigger inflammation.
After my PhD I worked for one year at University of Aberdeen, in Scotland as Research Fellow on a project which aimed to improve the design, conduct and reporting of behavioural randomised controlled trials of smoking cessation interventions. My work focused on performing evidence synthesis studies to identify predictors of recruitment and retention rates in randomised controlled trials.
