My position as senior scientist at Nestlé, a multinational food company, in combination with project coordinator in a multicenter research study at Uppsala University, and experience of working as assistant professor at Qatar University in Doha, gave me a broad international frame of reference and has further enhanced my genuine interest and willingness to cooperate with other countries and cultures.
