I hold the position of Community Engagement Officer at the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) based at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. This means that I serve as the primary point of contact between INCF National Nodes and the INCF Secretariat, and that I work to ensure maintained communication within and across the INCF National Nodes and the broader scientific community.
The INCF was launched in 2005, following a proposal from the Global Science Forum of the OECD to establish international coordination and collaborative informatics infrastructure for neuroscience – and currently has 17 member countries across North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. INCF establishes and operates scientific programs to develop standards for neuroscience data sharing, analysis, modeling and simulation while coordinating an informatics infrastructure designed to enable the integration of neuroscience data and knowledge worldwide and catalyze insights into brain function in health and disease.

I have a PhD in Computational Neuroscience and a MSc in Engineering Physics, both from KTH, and a passionate interest for the natural sciences - especially the interface between biology, theory and math.
