Research areas

I have a background as a physio therapist and a Master degree in Pain Management. I am currently employed here at the University Hospital Pain Center in Odense, Denmark where one of my primary interest as clinical researcher is to study how different pain outcomes are affected by exercise. I am particularly interested in understanding which factors that influence the inconsistent response to exercise in individuals with chronic pain, with some individuals reporting hypoalgesia and some reporting hyperalgesia after exercise.
