I am a professor of Biostatistics and Clinical Epidemiology at the Department of Clinical Research, at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Southern Denmark. Also, I am a senior biostatistician and convener of Section for Biostatistics and Evidence-Based Research at the Parker Institute, Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital.
I work with a broad field of biostatistical methods in medical research. The field covers a range of clinical epidemiological problems, where inference from meta-research, study designs, decision making processes, statistical analysis plans, use and misuse of statistics, and transparency dominate. I have a passion for meaningful, accurate studies that address “answerable questions”, owing a great debt of gratitude to a long history of distinguished founding fathers of clinical epidemiology, who highlighted the need for strengthening the empirical practice of medicine and proposed initial evidentiary rules for guiding clinical decisions.
