I am a doctor with experience in gastrointestinal surgery and a PhD student at Center for Surgical Science, Zealand University Hospital, Koege.

My research area deals with the perioperative optimization in patients who undergo abdominal surgery, with particular focus on avoiding heart damage caused by the anaesthesiological, surgical and immunological stress response triggered during surgery. Main focus for my PhD is, if remote ischemic preconditioning can improve patient outcome and reduce the risk of heart injury caused by surgery.
• Remote ischemic preconditioning
• Non-cardiac surgery
• Endothelial dysfunction
• Surgical stress
• Optimizing cardiovascular conditions perioperatively
