Global Technical Director for Healthcare, DNV GL

As an immunologist by training, I spent much of my early career working in laboratories working with pathogens such as HIV and HCV in hospitals in the US, Africa and Europe.

In 2001 I moved to DNV GL’s Research department to head up the Healthcare and Biorisk program where I was responsible for exploring how systems-based approaches to management and risk assessment can be adapted and applied to areas related to patient safety and to biorisk.

I have been working with many of the world’s leading organisations in the area of Biorisk management, including the WHO, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the Canadian Science Centre, the UK health Protection Agency and GSK.

In my current role I’m responsible for DNV GL’s international healthcare services including the Accreditation Programs for Hospitals, Primary Care Providers and Specialist Outpatient Clinics, as well as the new and novel risk based program aimed at supporting healthcare organisations improve management of infection risk (MIR).
