I finished my MSc in 1997 and became Research Fellow at the Institute of Medical Biology, University of Tromsø. In 2000 I started my PhD, which I fullfilled in 2005. Thereafter I worked as a post-doc until 2008. From 2008-2012 I worked as a researcher at the Department of Clinical Pathology, University Hospital of North Norway in a commissioned research project financed by Biotec Pharmacon ASA. I am a co-founder of the biotec company D’Liver AS and worked as senior scientist in the company between March 2012-September 2018. Before I started as researcher in Nofima 1st Nov 2019, I worked as Senior Scientist at University of Tromsø.
