After graduating from University of Copenhagen in 2013 I started specialization in anesthesiology. My primary focus has been optimization of patients in the perioperative period. Currently I study the effects of anesthesia techniques such as nerve blocks and inhalational anesthesia, on cancer progression in colorectal cancer.

I enjoy working in international environments and have previously lived, worked and studied abroad several times. In 2016 I spent six months working for Doctors Without Borders in a refugee camp for Burundi refugees building a health care system in an emergency setting. This gave me invaluable organizational, social, and personal experience that I use every day in my research projects. My heart still beats for global health and equal access to healthcare.

Today I live in Copenhagen with my wife and son – I enjoy city life, cooking, sailing and occasionally having cold beer with good friends.

My research focus on interventions in the perioperative period that may affect long-term oncologic outcomes after cancer surgery. Specific anesthetic techniques may modulate the immune response to surgery so cancer cells can seed, spread and grow. My research projects consist of clinical trials and epidemiologic studies of nationwide registers.
