Background and activities
Medical candidate, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), 2008
PhD candidate at department of public health and general practice, NTNU, 2011-2016.
Postdoctoral fellow, Department of public health and nursing, NTNU, 2016-2020.

Health service research
General practice research unit
I did my PhD project on work disability, particularly within couples.
As a postdoc I studied consequences of obesity, using genetic instrumental variables (Mendelian randomisation). Briefly, this method uses genetically determined variation in an exposure (in this case obesity) to avoid common biases when using observational studies to make causal inference.
Currently associated with projects on use of registry data on health services and general practice research.
