What inspired you to join IRIS Forskningsinvest?
It was inspiring for me to have the opportunity to work in the interface between research and commercialisation. I also liked the size of the IRIS organisation.

What do you like/dislike about your job?
The diversity of work tasks, together with the good working environment in IRIS is what I like best about my job. On the negative side, as in other parts of life, some things take longer than hoped for and expected. That can at certain times be a bit frustrating

What are you working on right now?
For the time being my work is primarily focused around my role in Stiftelsen Rogalandsforskning, follow up of IRIS FI portfolio companies and the cooperation with Validé now and going forward.
What has been your best moment at IRIS so far?
It is challenging to pin point a specific event, but the fact that I look forward to going to work every day is very valuable to me.
