Where did you work before you came to KI?

My recent job was at KTH where I worked as a finance officer. The work was a lot about helping out with budgets in various research projects, accounting, monthly reconciliations, and finance follow-ups within the divisions. Before that, I have actually worked at KI Solna with similar tasks.

Why did you decide for an education in finance?

I studied economics in high school and realized I had an interest in analyzing results. It is also a very vast education where you learn a lot about entrepreneurship and financing, which made it clear to me that I should continue studying economics at university as well.

What are you most looking forward to with your new job at Labmed? 

I look forward to working at KI again, it is a different type of research here compared to KTH. It will be fun to get to know new colleagues and researchers at Labmed and help them with finances in their research projects.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my free time, I mainly like to travel but also spend time with my family and relatives. I have a very large family so there is a lot of family reunions.
