My research project focus on health systems structure, in particular institution availablity and accessibility in relation to maternal and neonatal clinical outcomes. I also participate in an international collaboration addressing severe maternal morbidity (INOSS).
Since July 2015 I have also been working as medical doctor/researcher at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. In the project "Health Registries for Research" we aim to document quality and plan routine data linkage to monitor maternal health, particularly severe complications during pregnancy and childbirth. The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway.
I have a broad clinical experience in gynecology/obstetrics, abdominal and general surgery and I am currently on leave from my registrar position at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Haukeland University Hospital.
