Background and activities

Since 2012 i am also a Ph.d. candidate. I look upon the clinical effects of calf raise exercise in patients with intermittent claudication. I relate this to changes in mitochondrial function (powerplants of the cell) in the calf muscle. 

Furthermore I have an special interest in Anatomy and at the moment I am involved in teaching anatomy of the Muscular System to first-year student at the Medical Faculty, NTNU.

As a clinician I have worked as a general surgeon for several years and performed different operations in pediatric, gastric, vascular, breast and endocrine surgery and urology. 

At the moment I am a doctor specializing in Familiy Medicine and in Public Health.
