The focus of my work is primarily on scientific excellence, i.e. research of the highest scientific quality there funding comes from:

  • National Research Councils: the Swedish Research Council (VR), Formas and Forte
  • Swedish foundations: Wallenberg Foundations and the Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF)
  • Horizon 2020 Pillar 1: The European Research Council (ERC), Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) and Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).

I offer the following support to the University's researchers:

  • Advising on external funding strategies for postdoc, junior and established researchers
  • Help during the application process by reading and giving feedback on your application

I am the leader for the Research Funding Course. The course is offered every year and is aimed at PhD students and researchers.

I am a project manager in the Pro-Infra project, which aims at developing processes for the University's work with national and international research infrastructures. In this role, I support researchers who are interested in using research infrastructures, e.g. MAX IV, as well as researchers who wish to contribute to the development of large infrastructures, so-called Big Science, e.g. CERN, ESS, ITER.
