My professional work life has encompassed a career within private enterprises as well as serving as an educator in universities within Norway, France and the US. Prior to returning to academic life in the late 90s, I was employed in high-profile international companies working and living in three continents. My professional focus today centers around global health initiatives, particularly its funding, tracing sources and uses of resources. Presently I serve as an affiliated professor at the Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health teaching in the Doctoral Program in Global Health Leadership. My personal philosophy is linked to humanism; thoughts, deeds and actions where critical thinking takes precedence over doctrine and dogma.
