I am a postdoctoral fellow at PraksisNett - the Norwegian Primary Care Research Network, and I conduct research relevant for primary care. I am the project leader of a research project on sleep problems and infections in primary care, and I do research on sleep medication use among nurses. I am also the project leader of a project on general practitioners experience with the Norwegian guideline for screening women for pregnancy diabetes.

I have a masters degree in social economics and a PhD in cerebral palsy epidemiology.
