I hold a Ph.D. in "Biomedical Sciences", and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M) degree, currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at the "Department of Health Science and Technology" of "Aalborg University". During my career, I have gained vast experience in practice of medical and biomedical research, teaching, project management and leadership. I am motivated by demanding goals and aim to over-deliver on expectations. Great analytical skills, logical planning and trouble shooting, and an excellent ability to see the big picture have always been a part of my strong suit.
Always with a smile and a genuine interest for other people and for the task at hand, I inspire and motivate colleagues. I have received much appreciation and am known for building trust with others as a manager. At the same time as being a great team-worker, an important driver for me is to take the lead and perform challenging tasks with room for individual responsibility and high demands on delivery.

The primary goal of this project was to establish a protocol to freeze the sperm of the Caspian miniature horse in an attempt to start an intensive artificial insemination program to effectively increase the population of this breed, which has been listed as “Critical Rare Breed” by the American Livestock Breed Conservancy and is in danger of extinction. Commercially available equine freezing medium (EquiPRO CyoGuard Complete egg-yolk extender) was used for the initial setup of two different freeze protocols: slow and fast. The fast-freeze protocol had slightly better postthaw results and was used for a fertility demonstration. Five mares of proven fertility, aged 3 to 12 years, were used in the fertility trials, two of which resulted in pregnancy. This is the first report of pregnancy in the Caspian miniature horse using frozen semen, and the results seem to be a promising start to an extensive program to help this endangered breed, although further research on freezing protocols and conditions for this process are necessary to further improve the survival of semen and pregnancy rate.
