My research is mainly focused on work within the fields of cancer epidemiology and e-epidemiology.
Cancer epidemiology – Lifestyle factors and the prevention of prostate cancer and survival after a cancer diagnosis. My studies include associations between lifestyle factors, including body weight, weight change and physical activity, and their relation to prostate cancer risk and survival.
E-epidemiology – Development and validation of new web-based questionnaires to assess physical activity and diet among children, teenagers and adults.
