Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Her primary areas of investigation include Demography, Gerontology, Cohort study, Epidemiology and Body mass index. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Longitudinal study, Hazard ratio, Confidence interval, Proportional hazards model and Cohort. Her Gerontology research includes themes of Logistic regression, Dementia and Public health.

Her Cohort study research incorporates elements of Prospective cohort study, Smoking cessation, Smoking Reduction and Risk factor. Her Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Incidence and Cause of death. Her Body mass index research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cross-sectional study, Diet Records, Observational study and Obesity.

Her most cited work include:

  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • A century of trends in adult human height (1043 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Demography, Cohort study, Cohort, Gerontology and Internal medicine. The Demography study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Epidemiology, Confidence interval, Proportional hazards model and Socioeconomic status. Her research integrates issues of Logistic regression and Obesity in her study of Body mass index.

Her Cohort study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Young adult, Hazard ratio, Pediatrics, Depression and Risk factor. Her study looks at the intersection of Cohort and topics like Cognition with Cognitive decline, Developmental psychology and Audiology. Her work in Gerontology tackles topics such as Public health which are related to areas like Environmental health.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (47.72%)
  • Cohort study (44.84%)
  • Cohort (39.57%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cohort study (44.84%)
  • Cohort (39.57%)
  • Demography (47.72%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Merete Osler spends much of her time researching Cohort study, Cohort, Demography, Cognition and Young adult. Her study in Cohort study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hazard ratio, Occupational safety and health, Pediatrics, Depression and Risk factor. Her studies deal with areas such as Alcohol, Alcohol use disorder, Dementia and Abdominal surgery as well as Cohort.

Her studies examine the connections between Demography and genetics, as well as such issues in Body mass index, with regards to Obesity and Epidemiology. Her Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Confidence interval, Educational attainment and Cognitive decline. Her study with Young adult involves better knowledge in Gerontology.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Change in Overweight from Childhood to Early Adulthood and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes (117 citations)
  • Electroconvulsive therapy and risk of dementia in patients with affective disorders: a cohort study. (25 citations)
  • Electroconvulsive therapy and risk of dementia in patients with affective disorders: a cohort study. (25 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Cognition, Cohort study, Pediatrics, Cohort and Dementia are her primary areas of study. Her Cognition study also includes fields such as

  • Developmental psychology that connect with fields like Selection bias,
  • Cognitive decline together with Intelligence quotient, Demography, Visual short-term memory and Cognitive development. Her work often combines Demography and Intraclass correlation studies.

Her Cohort study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Young adult, International Standard Classification of Occupations and Depression. Her Pediatrics research incorporates elements of Overweight and Hazard ratio. Her research on Overweight concerns the broader Obesity.
