Area of Study / Keywords
I am a clinical microbiologist with a PhD degree from Uppsala University in Sweden, after which I worked for 23 years as a clinical microbiologist in a hospital in Gavle, Sweden. I moved back to Edmonton in 1999 and after spending 3 years completing the clinical research I was involved with, accepted a teaching position at the Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology. I have been teaching full time since then and my favourite topics are clinical microbiology related and teaching to healthcare professionals in training. I have been fortunate to have received several awards during my time teaching - the William Hardy Alexander award for Undergraduate Teaching, Outstanding Nursing Course Instructor 2011-2012 and Excellence in Teaching from the Interdepartmental Science Students' Society in 2016. I obtained a diploma in Medical Education from the University of Dundee because I wanted to learn more about pedagogy.
