I was a CARTA fellow during my PhD studies in the Cognitive Science Department at UCSD, graduating in 2016. I am currently a Research Leader at the Institute of Biological Psychiatry, a part of the Copenhagen University hospital system, and an Associate Professor at the GLOBE institute at Copenhagen University. My research uses large, population biobanks and medical records to describe the genetic contributions to psychiatric disorders. My research group pursues both gene-mapping studies to identify mechanisms of disease and gene-based prediction studies to develop risk assessment tools that could improve clinical care. We have the perspectives of genetic epidemiology, quantitative genetics, bioinformatics, and data science and focus on major depressive disorders and new methods or study designs.
