What are you looking forward to as a new vice chair of the Regulatory Science (RS) Community?
I am very excited to start as a vice chair and engage further in the RS Community! I look forward to learning more and contributing to activities run by the Society, and, of course, getting the chance to interact with other members.
What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am proud that I have seized the opportunities to change scenery that have arisen along my career. This has allowed me to gain new perspectives and develop on both a professional and a personal level. The biggest change geographically was when I was on leave from my position at the Swedish Medical Products Agency to join the Division of Quantitative Methods and Modeling/ORS/OGD/CDER/US Food and Drug Administration as a Fellow. That was one of the most rewarding and valuable times in my career.
Who has inspired you in your career?
I have been fortunate to be surrounded by great people from early on in my career. Looking back, I believe that those who have inspired me the most are highly engaged and knowledgeable. These people have in common that they are all generous in seeing and coaching others.
When you aren't working, how do you spend your free time?
Most of my free time I spend with my family, we have 3 children between the ages of 4 and 11 and they keep me busy. I highly appreciate the time we spend outdoors, but I’m not sure the rest of the family agrees.
Elin has been a member of ASCPT since 2018.
