Responsibilities

Introduction and development of molecular epidemiological methods for the detection of enteropathogenic bacteria and outbreak of food-borne infections.

Background

I completed a Philosophiae Doctor (PhD) degree in medical microbiology from the University of Tromsø in Norway (2009) building upon a Masters in Technology (Molecular Biotechnology) from the same institute in 2005. During my PhD I worked on the molecular epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance, focusing on the dissemination of extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs), plasmid mediated AmpC's and carbapenemases. During my postdoctoral research I focused on the identification of virulence factors, mutation potentials and transfer mechanisms of resistance with emphasis on plasmid biology using whole genome sequencing tools. Since 2013, I have been working at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, now at the Department of Zoonotic, Food- and Waterborne Infections. In 2016 I completed the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Controls (ECDC) two-year competency based training programme in public health microbiology (EUPHEM).
