In 1975, he came to the Department of Organic Chemistry, Royal Danish School of Pharmacy, as an Assistant Professor. In 1977, he became an Associate Professor of analytical chemistry of which he became a Full Professor in 1993. He obtained his D.S. degree in separation science in 1990, and he is now at the Department of Pharmaceutics and Analytical Chemistry, The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. His main research interests are within basic separation sciences (primarily HPLC and CE), in particular on separation mechanisms, but also extended into hyphenated techniques using NMR and ICP-MS besides conventional detection techniques. New techniques and methods are applied in bioanalysis and in drug metabolism. In drug metabolism, focus has been on reactive drug metabolites and their possible role in idiosyncratic reactions. He authored and/or coauthored more than 240 papers in international peer-review journals. For 20 years, he was the President of the Scandinavien Section of The Chromatographic Discussion Group until this was changed into the Separation Sciences Foundation where he is still the President. He has been involved in the arrangement of a major number of national and international conferences, lately as the Chair of the 26th International Symposium in Chromatography.
