Research groups


I am employed in EPISTAT - the area of epidemiology and statistics - at the Department of Global Public Health and Primary Care (IGS), and my research within these fields revolves around analyses of parent-child trios or pairs with genetic and epigenetic data, and health registry data. I belong to TRACE, the center for translational epidemiology, which has members from EPISTAT and other departments and faculties at UiB.

Through my work with FairChoices, I am also part of the Bergen Centre for Ethics and Priority Setting in Health (BCEPS), a center of excellence for research under IGS. FairChoices is a tool used to scale up the healthcare system in countries where the population does not have access to necessary healthcare.
