• Challenges in global Indigenous-Disability comparative research, or, why nation-state political histories matter 

    Soldatic, Karen; Melbøe, Line; Kermit, Patrick Stefan; Somers, Kelly (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Globally, Indigenous people, also known as First Peoples, have the poorest health outcomes of all population groups, resulting in significantly higher rates of chronic disease, ill-health, and disability. Recent research strongly suggests that Australian First Peoples and the Sami peoples of the Nordic region are positioned at opposite ends of the disability–health spectrum. Australia’s First Peoples, ...
  • Quaternary interaction of cryospheric and oceanographic processes along the central-east Greenland margin 

    Perez, Lara F.; Nielsen, Tove; Rasmussen, Tine Lander; Winsborrow, Monica (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-16)
    The east Greenland margin has been influenced by oceanographic and cryospheric processes since the late Miocene, when the southwards flow of the East Greenland Current (EGC) initiated and ice sheets first advanced across the margin. However, the relative importance of these processes, and their influence on the sedimentation of the margin through time remains poorly understood. High‐resolution ...
  • Low levels of immunoglobulins and mannose-binding lectin are not associated with etiology, severity, or outcome in community-acquired pneumonia 

    Siljan, William Ward; Nymo, Ståle Haugset; Husebye, Einar; Ueland, Thor; Skattum, Lillemor; Bosnes, Vidar; Garred, Peter; Frøland, Stig Sophus; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Aukrust, Pål; Heggelund, Lars (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-05)
    <p><i>Background - </i>Disease severity and outcome in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) depend on the host and on the challenge of the causal microorganism(s). We measured levels of immunoglobulins (Igs) and complement in 257 hospitalized adults with CAP and examined the association of low levels of Igs or complement to microbial etiology, disease severity, and short-term and long-term ...
  • Outlier classification using autoencoders: Application for fluctuation driven flows in fusion plasmas 

    Kube, Ralph; Bianchi, Filippo Maria; LaBombard, Brian; Brunner, Dan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-16)
    Understanding the statistics of fluctuation driven flows in the boundary layer of magnetically confined plasmas is desired to accurately model the lifetime of the vacuum vessel components. Mirror Langmuir probes (MLPs) are a novel diagnostic that uniquely allow us to sample the plasma parameters on a time scale shorter than the characteristic time scale of their fluctuations. Sudden large-amplitude ...
  • Stereotype threat-effects for Turkish-origin migrants in Germany: Taking stock of cumulative research evidence 

    Froehlich, Laura; Mok, Sog Yee; Martiny, Sarah E.; Deaux, Kay (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-24)
    Turkish-origin migrants on average show lower academic performance than Germans. This achievement gap cannot be fully explained by socio-economic differences between the groups. Negative competence stereotypes about Turkish-origin students predict the causal attributions that German preservice teachers make for migrants’ academic underperformance. Specifically, the more strongly preservice teachers ...
