About me

  • I hold a Master of Pharmacy degree and a PhD degree in molecular microbiology
    from the University of Oslo, Norway. During my PhD and my first period as a
    postdoctoral research fellow, I studied regulation of DNA replication and
    genome instability in the model organism /Escherichia coli/ at the Norwegian
    Institute for Cancer Research. I then changed my research field to
    pharmacoepidemiology working as a senior advisor at the Norwegian Institute
    of Public Health. As a senior advisor I was responsible for the daily
    operations at the Norwegian Prescription Database and I also worked in
    pharmacoepidemiological research projects. In 2015, I joined Department of
    Public Health Sciences, Karolinska Institutet as a postdoctoral research
    fellow in antibiotic stewardship where I focused my research on rational use
    of antibiotics and trends in antibiotic resistance in a global context. Since
    2017, I have been working as a research coordinator at Centre for
    Pharmacoepidemiology. My main research focus is reproductive
    pharmacoepidemiology with a special focus on consequences for both mother and
    offspring in connection with drug treatment during pregnancy. I am also
    studying safety of various drugs in commissioned projects (Post-authorisation
    safety studies, PASS) utilizing the Swedish population-based registers.
    2004-2009: PhD in molecular microbiology, University of Oslo, Norway
