About me

  • I have a PhD from KI and have been working with education and project
    management at the Unit for Bioentrepreneurship (UBE) since 2010. I am now the
    Programme Director for the Masters Programme in Bioentrepreneurship which
    means that I have the KI-overall responsibility for the ongoing work on the
    programme, including responsibility for the quality and coordination of
    programme courses. I am also the Assistant Director of Studies at the
    department of LIME with a special responsibility for the international
    programmes at the department.
    Most of my time is devoted to different educational tasks. During my time at
    the Unit for Bioentrepreneruship, I have been course director and lecturer
    for several courses in the different international programmes at KI. I have
    developed and led the course “Effective Advocacy for Boards and
    Committees”, given for the first time in 2011, and acted as the study
    director for the Drug Discovery and Development research school offered in
    I was the project manager for the internationalisation of the bachelor's
    programme in Biomedicine and during 2015, the development of a new programme
    syllabus for the same programme.
