What are your main tasks as financial controller? 

As financial controller at MedH, I will handle financial issues related to the department's EU projects for research funding. I will also be the contact person for some of MedH:s research groups for economy related issues, however it's not yet decided which groups.

What do you look forward to with your new role? 

I'm looking forward to learn all about the financial work and routines at MedH, and to get to know everyone at the department. I'm also excited to become part of the interesting and important research that is being conducted here.

What did you do before? 

Before coming to KI, I worked as Finance Manager at a high school, with everything from daily accounting activities, to financial statements and annual reports.

What do you like doing in your spare time? 

When not at work, I spend time with my family, usually that means a lot of playing with the children and walking the dog. I also enjoy baking and I absolutely love "fika"! If I have time to spare, I consume plenty of films, series and books.
