About me

  • Epidemiologist , Centre for Research on Health Care in Disasters, ViTriEx
    (Virtual Triage Exercise) och AnTriEx (Analog Triage Exercise)
    I am an epidemiologist with a Master of Science in Epidemiology degree from
    London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. My master thesis focused on
    how different means of food security interventions affect nutritional status
    among the target population in Somalia.
    I am currently working with the Centre for Research on Health Care in
    Disasters [1], at the Department of Global Public Health [2], focusing on
    developing interactive simulation methodologies to equip health care workers
    with skills and knowledge to manage unforeseen events where the needs exceed
    available resources. I am also in the process to develop and validate the
    open access virtual simulation methodology ViTriEx - Virtual Triage Exercise
    In addition to my role at KI, I also manage the implementation of a grant
    from the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, which focus on
    mobilisation, facilitation, and empowerment of multi-stakeholder-engagement
    within the implementation of the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction.
    I have previously worked within the World Health Organisation in the Health
    Emergency Program, where I supported the development of international
    guidance on health-care system disaster preparedness
