Through my position as Director of the Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research, COPE, I have gained a large network and am connected with many disaster researchers working at University of Copenhagen. Before COPE was established, I was Head of Studies for the Master of Disaster Management programme (MDMa), which I co-created in 2008. The interdisciplinary connections I have made through my work with MDMa and COPE now manifest themselves in the variety of my current research interests.
- Combating Cholera caused by Climate Change in Bangladesh (C5)
A multidisciplinary DANIDA-funded study examining the risk and effects of climate-induced cholera on water stress and household hygiene in low-income area Tongi, Bangladesh.
- Changing Disasters
An interdisciplinary research project embracing all six university faculties. The project investigates how modern societies interact with disasters.
- Interdisciplinary Learning
Combining interdisciplinary research based in COPE with interdisciplinary teaching at MDMa.
My core area is Environmental Hygiene; mainly water and sanitation, as well as the transmission of hygiene-related diseases (such as cholera and other diarrheal diseases) during disasterous events and in developing countries.
- Master of Disaster Management core module
- Water and Sanitation in Emergency course
