New postdoc at the division of Nursing, NVS.

What is your mission at NVS?/What will you be working with?

I am a postdoc in Lars E. Eriksson's research group and I will work in the project ”Patientens Erfarenhet av sina Kroppsliga förändringar vid LUngutredniNG” (PEKLUNG). We will investigate how subjective experiences can be linked to biomarkers to facilitate early detection of lung cancer. We collaborate with researchers at SciLifeLab.

Which division will you be working at?

I will be working at the division of Nursing.

What do you look forward to the most in your new position?

I look forward to learning new things, getting to know and working with new colleagues, researching with new methods, and working with new types of data.

Where have you been active before and what have you done earlier?

I am originally from the Philippines but have lived in Sweden since 2000. I have defended my thesis and worked at Stockholm School of Economics, where I have mainly taught and researched cooperation and sustainable development.

When you are not working, what do you do for recreation?

I walk and photograph in nature (especially sunsets), and do yoga. I like to travel, try new food, go to museums and take part in cultural activities.

Are you reading a book at the moment? Which one?

I read my students' essays for grading, but the last book I read was ”Jag kan ha fel” by Björn Natthiko Lindeblad. I have started browsing a book about Hilma af Klint – the Art of Seeing the Invisible.

Tell us about the most beautiful place you have visited?

Jag har varit på många vackra platser, t.ex. Lofoten i Norge, Balabac och El Nido i Filippinerna, Fraser Island i Australien och Kruger Park i Sydafrika. Alla platser är vackra på sitt sätt.

I have been to many beautiful places such as Lofoten in Norway, Balabac and El Nido in the Philippines, Fraser Island in Australia and Kruger Park in South Africa. All places are beautiful in their own way.

What makes you happy?

Experience new things, travel to new places, to have "flow" at work and to be in good company. Watching a good show, meeting old friends and following my children's development in life also makes me happy.
