About me

I have my background in the pharma industry and worked at AstraZeneca as a SAS-programmer with clinical trials for more than 10 years. I was also responsible for the implementation of the industry data standard for clinical trial data in preparations for regulatory submissions (CDISC). 

I'm interested in the development of common methods and processes through improvement projects. At the Center for Pharmacoepidemiology (CPE), I have, together with Prof. Morten Andersen, University of Copenhagen, developed a Nordic Common Data Model (CDM) that will lead to a more efficient and safe data management using health register data (e.g. Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and Statistics Sweden.) The aim is to support Nordic as well as global collaborations and to make pharmacoepidemiological research more transparent. I have also led the work to develop CPE's quality management system. The purpose of the quality system is to meet quality requirements from regulatory authorities, mainly the European Medicine Agency (EMA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when conducting commissioned Post Authorisation Safety projects (PAS-studies). The quality system is also in line with KI internal quality requirements when performing academic studies in the pharmacoepidemiological field.

Since 2016 I'm a project manager for a number of Post Authorisation Safety Studies (PASS).
