Foodborne diseases are an important cause of human illness worldwide. Humans acquire these infections from a variety of sources and routes of transmission.

Several control programs have been implemented both international and in the Denmark, with the aim to monitor and control the occurrence of foodborne zoonoses along the whole food production chain, from primary production, through slaughtering, processing and retail, to consumption.

Throughout my career, m y research has been focused on issues related to monitoring and prevention of endemic diseases/ antimicrobial usage in animals and zoonotic infections. During my career, I have gained experience in designing observational research studies.  Further I have implemented and applied advanced statistical and mathematical methods in a risk assessment context and in relation to surveillance of pathogens in the food production chain. I have cooperate with colleagues on projects focusing on the development of diagnostic tests, and thereby obtained experiences in evaluation the performance of diagnostic tests utilized in surveillance of infections.
