Where did you work before coming to KI?

I previously worked as a Biomedical Engineer at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Karolinska University Hospital since January 2000.

Why did you decide to have an education as medical technician?

Technology has always interested me, so becoming a Biomedical Engineer was an easy choice for me.

What are you most looking forward to with your new job in ANA Futura?

I think it's exciting with something new and the many different tasks, both high and low.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, work in the garden. I sing Barbershop in the Rönninge Show Chorus and compete with the choir. Now at the end of October we travel to the USA to compete in the World Cup. We have three World Cup gold medals since before.
