2018-2021: PhD fellow, Section Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition, Copenhagen University

PhD project: Fat emulsifiers to improve neurocognitive development in a preterm piglet model

In my PhD project I am investigating how different fat emulsifiers in milk affect neonatal health and development using a preterm pig model. The main focus area is neurocognitive development with secondary endpoints in growth, immunity, gut maturation/health/function.

2010-2016: MSc Veterinary medicine (Companion animal specialization), Copenhagen University

Master thesis: Comparison of canine intradermal and in vitro serum allergy tests

Work experience:

2016-2018: Research assistant, Veterinary Pathology, Copenhagen University

Research areas: Implant associated osteomyelitis in pigs, forensic bruising in pigs, sticky mink kits

Other relevant education: 

Course in Laboratory animal science, FELASA category ABD

Research skills/competencies:

Medical and surgical experimental animal work, primarily with pigs. This includes working with a preterm pig model with a nutritional and organ developmental focus, a pig model of implant-associated osteomyelitis and a pig model of forensic bruising.

In vivo behavioural testing such as open-field, novel object recognition and spatial plus maze

Ex vivo analyses such as gross pathology, histopathology, immunohistochemistry, conventional microbiology and imaging

Forenisc pathological casework
