Dirk Lund Christensen is Associate Professor at the Section of Global Health. His main research interests are cardio-metabolic diseases with different exposure variables such as physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, high fat diet, low birth weight, and infections (TB, malaria etc). Recently, he has also examined the relationship between extreme physical activity exposure and potential damage of key organs (heart and kidneys). Another main interest is the use of methodological tools for diagnosis of cardio-metabolic diseases such as HbA1c (diabetes) and triglyceride (dyslipidaemia) due to their poor applicability in non-European/European Diaspora populations.
