Started at SINTEF in 1981. Current position is Vice President Marketing with special responsibility in medical technology including nanomedicine. Worked mostly in the field of particle technology, starting with the development of the Dynabeads, then developing micro- and nanoparticles for protection and controlled release of active ingredients for various applications. She is past president of CRS and past chair of ETPN. She is a member of NTVA and the College of Fellows of AIMBE and CRS.
Undergraduate education in organic chemistry (1975) and PhD in physical organic chemistry (1979) from ETH Zürich, Switzerland. Post doc in organic electrochemistry (1980) at NTH, Trondheim, Norway.
Competence and research areas
Research activities include the preparation and characterisation of micro- and nanoparticles and the surface modification of polymers and polymer particles with focus on nanomedicine, targeted drug delivery, nanotechnology-based diagnostics and regenerative medicine. She has long-term experience in translation from lab to pilot scale and has business development experience.
