Casper has studied biology with an emphasis on population genetics at University of Copenhagen and obtained his master’s degree in 2014. He completed his PhD in bioinformatics in 2017 working on demographic inferences from large-scale NGS data sets. He has been working extensively with sequence data and published within fields spanning from conservation genetics to human genetics. Casper joined COPSAC in the summer of 2018 where he will be focusing on epigenetic markers important for asthma risk in children and whether these markers co-occur with environmental factors, such as smoking and pollution.
