Lena Strömbäck

Senior Research Coordinator

In the role as research coordinator, I work with making IT resources available for research but also more strategically with questions about the need for future IT support.

Research coordinator with focus on IT

My role is to help with questions around everything from software and data management to research areas with special needs for IT. Part of the work is to identify future needs that can support researchers in their work. Another goal is to identify similar needs of different research groups and put them in contact with each other, to contribute to improved resource utilization and knowledge transfer.

Some examples of questions where I can support:

  • Systems for managing various types of research data
  • IT support in laboratory environments
  • Advice on the introduction of new systems
  • Resource planning and technical advice in connection to research applications

Previous work and academic qualifications

I defended my dissertation in Data Processing in Natural Language at Department of Computer and Information Science (IDA), Linköping University, in 1997. After that I worked as a senior lecturer in the field of databases and Bioinformatics and became an associate professor in 2008. From 2011 I worked at SMHI, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, as a research coordinator and unit manager in their research department where IT-related issues were often in focus of the work.
