I'm acting head of Grants Office and Quality. At Grants Office, we offer support to LTU management and researchers in external funding issues. We also offer advice and workshops on many important issues for funders; such as gender perspectives, research impact and funding strategies. We can also provide support for project planning and project coordination.

I have a PhD at LTU in Entrepreneurship in 2008 and then continued working with research and education. I also have a master's degree in Business Administration, 2003, with a focus on organization and management. Between 2011-2016 I worked with the EU funding program Interreg Nord and international partnerships / collaboration within the Arctic and Barents region at the County Administrative Board of Norrbotten.
