I graduated as a medical doctor in 2017 and have worked in the field of pathology since 2018. In March 2021 I was employed as a PhD student part-time at the Dept. of Pathology, Roskilde Hospital, and part-time at Center for Surgical Science, Køge Hospital.

I work with digital pathology and deep learning aiming to find prognostic and predictive biomarkers in the tumor microenvironment of locally advanced rectal cancer, which has been treated with neoadjuvant therapy. Furthermore, I am interested in the development of new objective digital methods in assessing the pathological treatment response and tumor regression grading after neoadjuvant therapy.
