Project coordinator

Coordinator at Global Disaster Medicine - Health Needs and Response

About me

I work as a project coordinator at the research group Global Disaster Medicine - Health Needs and Response.

  • I work as a coordinator for the Erasmus Mundus Master’s programme in Public Health in Disasters. In my role as programme coordinator, I am in charge of planning and coordinating the course content, as well as overseeing student experience. Alongside the Erasmus Mundus programme, I coordinate the freestanding course Public Health Response in Disasters (20 credits), which is given once a year. I also coordinate the professional education Health assistance in humanitarian crisis which is a collaboration between MSF Sweden and KI. The course is attended by doctors and nurses ahead of a mission with MSF and aims to provide competencies, strategies, and tools to work as humanitarian health assistance staff.
  • I am also part of managing the group's role as advisory body to the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen). Within this , I am part of writing external monitoring reports and research overviews on the topic of global disaster medicine.
  • And I work with IPA Care, a capacity-building project to prevent the risk of earthquakes and health emergencies, in the group. 

Before coming to KI, I have worked with matters related to global development at non-governmental organisations.

I am happy to answer questions about our courses at Global Disaster Medicine - Health Needs and Response, the IPA Care project, and our work as a research centre (kunskapscentrum) to the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare.
