Sheffield made it possible to be where I am today
I started my career after university by participating in a graduate scheme with Trainee Sør and Eyde-cluster. It consisted of three-six months positions in the research and development departments of the companies Glencore Nikkelverk, Saint Gobain Ceramic Materials, and GE Healthcare.
To choose chemistry as a career path was easy for me as it was my favourite subject and I enjoyed understanding the underlying mechanisms and reactions of what we can observe.

Now I am working as a scientist for GE Healthcare Lindesnes Fabrikker, a factory producing bulk substance for contrast media. 75% of my work is dedicated to an industrial PhD in cooperation with University of Bergen. I have always enjoyed research and to find more pieces to the big puzzle. An industrial PhD gives my PhD an extra dimension as I can see how my work can be used to improve current processes.
My time in Sheffield gave me a great chemistry degree, making it possible to be where I am today. I also grew on a personal level by getting involved in societies at the students union and volunteering as a beaver leader for a local scout group.
