One of my main focus areas at Grants Office is research grants from the European Research Council (ERC). These grants include ERC Starting-, Consolidator- and Advanced Grant, Proof-of-Concept Grants and Synergy Grants. I offer support to researchers at every step of the application process, from concept formulation, grant writing and reviewing, to mock interviews and grant application administration.
I am also LiU’s contact person for the Wallenberg foundations, which means that I work with tasks ranging from processes around internal nomination procedures to assisting nominated researchers in the application process.
I have an extensive basic- and biomedical research background within life science, molecular biology and neuroscience. I received my PhD in 2007 at University of Edinburgh, UK. In 2012 I moved to Sweden to pursue research in the Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences at LiU, where my research focus was on sub-neuronal mechanisms of neurodegeneration.
I have been working at the Grants Office since the beginning of 2018.
