About me

  • I have a background as a journalist and started out at Karolinska Institutet in the role of Press Officer in 2006. Nowadays, I work as a Science Communication Strategist at the Communications and Public Relations Office, within the Press Office and Editorial Content Unit. This means that I work with everything from the development of routines, guidelines and templates to web editing and news writing. I am also the coordinator for the Research website on ki.se, and I lead the internal working group for popular science communication at the Comms Office. Additionally, I serve as a general knowledge resource within my area of responsibility.

    Please contact me if you have questions about for example:

    • The Research website at ki.se, for example central web pages about core facilities, centres, and professors.

    • News about scientific articles and doctoral theses.

    • High-impact publication lists on central web pages.

    • Lectures about popular science communication and writing.

    • KI's participation in the website Forskning.se and our participation in the international news platform The Conversation.

    • Guidelines and advice for the planning of popular science communication.

    • Anything else in the area of popular science communication at KI – I may not have the answer myself, but perhaps I can point you in the direction to someone who has.

    Questions from journalists or general media issues at KI are kindly referred to the Press Office. Information for researchers about guidelines and procedures for media launch of publications and doctoral theses can be found on the Staff Portal. For further questions concerning the Communications and Public Relations Office, please go to the pages about communication tools and support on the Staff Portal.
