Research

The main focus of my research is etiological and methodological epidemiology with an emphasis on topics somewhere in the intersection between epidemiology and transfusion medicine. In addition, I also participate in more clinically related transfusion medicine projects, especially with emphasis on transfusions in massively bleeding patients and the effects of transfusions on coagulopathy.I’m a participant of the large US, NHLBI-funded REDS-III study.

In addition, I also have an interest in cancer epidemiology, having published, e.g. on the epidemiology of esophageal adenocarcinoma, on breast cancer heritability, and on sex differences in cancer incidence.
