Christina Johansson new head of administration at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology
As of August 2022 Christina Johansson is new head of administration at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology (FyFa). Christina has worked in various roles and departments at KI since 2015, most recently as head of administration at the Unit for Teaching and Learning (UoL).
Welcome Christina, could you tell us about your background?
– My interest in psychology and behavior awoke early and I chose to study it in an organizational context at Uppsala University. In 2015, I started my KI journey as HR manager at the Department of Laboratory Medicine. Since then, I have been HR manager at the Department of Medicine in Huddinge and head of administration at the Unit for Teaching and Learning. After advising 500 leaders in my HR role, I became curious about adult development, mainly in a leadership perspective. For the past year, I have been a leadership coach at our internal leadership programs, which has been valuable for my understanding of challenges our leaders face daily. In December, I finish the training to become a professional coach.
What are you most looking forward to in your role as Head of Administration at FyFa?
– FyFa has a strong and competent support team and I look forward to supporting the department as a part of this team! I also look forward to getting to know all the people at FyFa and partnering with head of department, Sophie Erhardt, who has a strong and an inspiring vision for how we shall run development work at FyFa during coming years.
Anything you would like to explore or focus more specifically on?
– Initially, getting to know the department is most important. Together with my team, I want to continue working closely with the teachers and researchers and taking care of the great culture at FyFa.
What would you rather do on your spare time?
– Take care of my health. For me, that means spending time with loved ones over food and conversation, lifting weights at the gym, going for a run, giving my northern heart recovery in nature, and learning something new!
