Short overview
In my research, I work with mathematical modelling og biological system.
In particular, I have worked with modelling the spread of diseased (epidemiology), blood-cancers and public communication of mathematics.

In my Ph.D. I worked with extending and improving a mathematical model of the Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs), a type of blood cancer.
A major goal for me and my research would be to reach a point where the MPN-model can be used as an accurate predictive tool in clinics.

Public communication
I have a large personal interest in dissemination of mathematical results and various ways of visualizing and representing fascinating results, since I believe complicated math can be understood by laymen if given the right presentation. 
This has resulted in a number of interactive visualizations and articles written for broad public audience. Links are found on my website.

Currently I am a part of the PandemiX center, working with communication regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition, I work with mathematical modelling of historical diseaseoutbreaks.
