Since January 2016
I am employed as Health Economist in the Analysis Team in The Association of Danish Pharmacies (Danmarks Apotekerforening) - a cross functional team with economists and pharmacists. In my position as a health economist my primary task is to work with health economic analyses that shed light on: o The pharmacies' health-professional competencies and -efforts o The health economic utility of services provided by the Danish pharmacies o Comparative analyses of the price-settings of medicine in Europe o Literature reviews to support policy recommendations Results: I wrote an analysis about the prices of antihistamines treating allergic rhinitis, which can be bought at Danish pharmacies at a third of the typical price for antihistamines at retail stores. My analysis led to a news article on the cover of the news paper MetroXpress, which has more than 1 mio. readers per day. Hence my analysis led to positive publicity pointing out the importance of the Danish pharmacies, who provide the most affordable pharmaceuticals to Danish consumers.

April 2014 --- June 2014
I was employed as instructor in the course "Social Pharmacy" during an eight-week period. I taught two teams of 15-20 students, helping student solve assignments aimed at understanding the role of the industry in a societal and economic perspective. Teaching students with non-economic proficiencies in economic disciplines was a good challenge which taught me a lot about teaching and presenting. The course was held by Christian Kronborg and Marie Kruse, both health economic professors at SDU. During the course students are taught about topics such as, o Opportunity Costs o Incremental Cost Effectiveness Ratio o Marginal Costs o Regulation of Pharmacies, Distributors and Manufacturers o Reimbursement of Pharmaceuticals in Denmark
