Academic interests

  • Respiratory tract infections and the use of antibiotics in primary care.
  • ENT-related infections and problems in primary and secondary care.
  • Patient-centered clinical research.

Background

I started working at the University of Oslo in Febuary 2009, at the Antibiotic center for primary care.

I have combined this with 50 % clinical work as an SpR in the ENT department, Oslo University hospital, Rikshospitalet.

Before I started my research here at the institute I worked as a GP and hospital SpR in Rogaland and Akershus counties.

My primary research fields are upper respiratory infections and the use of antibiotics. I am currently involved in a projects in this field, at the Antibiotic centre for primary care, as well as working with the Primary care research network in Norway.
