Member in Open Science Sweden since its official founding.
I am a member of FORCE11, an open science adjacent “community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders that has arisen organically to help facilitate the change toward improved knowledge creation and sharing”. Yes, I mention them twice, because they are awesome.

Community Engagment Officer @ INCF
2013 – present
Community Engagement Officer, INCF (International Neuroinformatics
Coordinating Facility), at the INCF secretariat hosted by Karolinska Institutet,
PhD student in computational neuroscience
2004 – 2010
PhD student in computational neuroscience at KTH, School of Computer Science
and Communication, with Professor Anders Lansner. My subject was developing
computational biologically plausible models of the early olfactory system in
vertebrates, using MATLAB and C++.
From February 2004 to June 2008, I was also responsible for management and organization of the ”Biomimetics” node of the FP6 Network of Excellence GOSPEL (General Olfaction and Sensing Projects on a European Level). This node comprised ten international research groups with fields spanning experimental biology, artificial olfaction technology, and mathematical modelling and data analysis. (This was my first community manager experience, but I didn’t know what to call it then.)
