Background and activities

I am a civil engineer in biotechnology and a PhD in pharmacology. Previously, I have worked in several laboratories both nationally and internationally within different disciplines. Through my PhD I became a specialist in lipid metabolism associated with type 2 diabetes and obesity in muscle cells. I also have experience with different live cell imaging techniques and teaching, as well as analysis with big gene expression data sets. 

I work at Centre of Molecular Inflammation Research (CEMIR) at NTNU. As a post doc I was working on revealing the mechanisms behind inflammation and complement system activation in regards to cholesterol crystal accumulation in atherosclerotic plaques and to find new novel treatments against atherosclerosis.15 september 2014 - 1st of june I was in the lab of Prof Eicke Latz, Institute of Innate Immunity, University of Bonn, Germany. Now I work as a researcher studying TLR4 mediated signalling in relation to human disease (70%), and as a head engineer on a project studying the effect of weight reduction on the coagulation and complement system (30%).
