About me

I am Community Engagement Officer at the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) based at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. This means that I serve as the primary point of contact between INCFs community and its Secretariat, and that I work to ensure maintained communication within and across our community and the broader scientific community.

The INCF was launched in 2005, following a proposal from the Global Science Forum of the OECD to establish international coordination and collaborative informatics infrastructure for neuroscience.

INCF works to make neuroscience more open and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable), by coordinating and supporting infrastructure and standards development in the global scientific community. Tools and resources we devlop are open to all.

I have a PhD in Computational Neuroscience and a MSc in Engineering Physics, both from KTH, and a scientific community manager education from AAAS Community Engagement Fellows program. My personal goal is to help maake science more open and reproducible.
