I currently work as a scientist at the KG Jebsen Center for Diabetes Research, Department of Clinical Science, University of Bergen, and at the Center for Medical Genetics and Molecular Medicine, Haukeland University Hospital, both in Bergen, Norway. I am affiliated through active cooperation to the Bergen Stem Cell Consortium and the CompOmics group in Gent, Belgium. I am member of the European Bioinformatics Community (EuBIC) initiative, and of the educational committee of the European Proteomics Association (EuPA).
My main research focus is the improvement of diagnostic, prognostic, and treatment of diseases through the application of omics techniques. My field of expertise is the bioinformatic interpretation of clinical data. My research is primarily applied to projects at the biomedical and clinical departments of the University of Bergen, but the methods and tools produced can be applied in other contexts. I have strong interests in knowledge sharing and education, and try to make my work open and documented.
I am always happy to discuss possible projects and collaborations, and to help with the interpretation of clinical data - don't hesitate to contact me!
