Mette Dencker

Position

Associate professor in the Medical Informatics group, Department of Health Science and Technology (www.hst.aau.dk), Aalborg University.

 

Research

My research area is blood glucose control and blood glucose modelling in type 1-diabetes. Primarily I focus on effects of hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose), which is relevant in order to optimise the insulin treatment and not over-dose insulin after hypoglycaemia. I have worked on establishing and using a pig model af type 1 diabetes, but I also work with continuous glucose sensoring technologies. I look into the timing of post-prandial blood glucose measurements to detect post-prandial hyperglycemia. Another research area is the use of software systems for patient and medical student learning.

 

Teaching

I teach in the bachelor of medicine at Aalborg University in modules of anatomy and physiology. I teach courses in the biomedical engineering and informatics program; anatomy and physiology and human biology. I have also taught software development and database courses. I teach technology courses in the techno tnthropology program and human biology in the biology program. I also teach theories of science and scientific methods in the sports science program.

I supervise project groups on various semesters of the bachelor and master program in biomedical engineering and informatics, Aalborg University, and project groups on various semesters of the bachelor programme of Techno Anthropology, Aalborg University. I have also supervised project groups on the bachelor program in biology at Aalborg University.

Background

I am a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering and Informatics, graduated from Aalborg University June 2005. I specialised in medical informatics. I hold a PhD degree in blood glucose physiology from Aalborg University, since Dec. 2008.
