fieldFeild     I am


I work as a PhD-candidate at the Department of Public Health and General Practice, Faculty of Medicine, NTNU.

My field covers prevalence and risk factors for anal incontinence among women. My PhD is based on results from the highly reputable and internationally acknowledged health survey HUNT.

The results from HUNT are combined with information from the Norwegian Medical Birth Registry to investigate if child births (i.e. delivery method, complications during birth, etc) are reason to why adult women experience anal incontinence – or if other risk factors dominate.

In addition to the PhD, I work as an associate professor at the Physiotherapy Programme at Sør-Trøndelag University College.
