Further I have been delivering and assisting MOL3007 and MOL3021/3022 in some of their lectures and training respectively to Master/PhD students and assisting them in their thesis/manuscripts within Norwegian University of Science and Technology.


I have also taken/contributed to several initiative even outside my stated job, like being part of the local organizing committee of "International NTNU Symposium on Clinical Biomarkers of Cancer" I have also been active member of social events organized by the department.
