2008 - 2011 PhD, Panum Institute, Copenhagen University
PhD student at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the Department of Biomedical Sciences in The Ion Channel Group by associated professor Nicole Schmitt. My primary focus has been post-translational modifications of ion channels in the heart and brain.

2010 - 2010 Visiting scholar (PhD student)
I spent 3 months in the laboratory of Jason C. Young at the McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I got the opportunity to investigate a side project, gain insight into another lab and learn new techniques as radioactive in vitro translation and High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).

2007 - 2007 Cooperation with the company, TopoTarget, during my master thesis.
My master thesis was made as a collaboration between the company TopoTarget at the BioCentre and the University of Southern Denmark. I worked with various biochemical techniques combined with mass spectrometry.


2001 - 2007 Cand. Scient. at the University of Southern Denmark.
I studied Biochemistry and Molecular Biology - Chemistry in Odense.

During my ITEK project after the Bachelor I got the possibility to work with a visiting scientist, Michael K. McIntosh, a professor at the University in Greensboro, USA. Cellular mechanisms in primary cultures were the main focus of the project.

1997 - 2000 Mathematic Student, Ringkøbing College
