I am a decision sciences and health economics researcher who focuses on applying decision-analytic and statistical methods in cancer, genetics and precision medicine to assess and identify efficient strategies that would improve patients’ health outcomes, and to design and prioritize clinical research in limited-resource settings, including health disparities.
I am currently engaged in health policy-making and research in Norway through two positions. First, I am a Senior Advisor at the Norwegian Directorate of Health. This position has afforded me the opportunity to gain experience in national policy-making by performing health economic analyses of preventive interventions, priority settings in health, development of national guidelines, and by serving as a Norwegian delegate in international organizations such as OECD. Additionally, part of my time is dedicated to teaching and research as an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Management and Health Economics at the University of Oslo, Norway.
