Applied Intelligence Consultant
"Our work is meaningful—we make a difference for Telia and beyond."
I am an Applied Intelligence Consultant, and we help businesses and a variety of industries with a targeted approach, using our expertise and experience to help them apply technology to get to where they need to be. My work focuses on data analytics.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Nordics region needed fast, reliable insights on disease patterns and travel movement. Working with Telia, a Nordic telecommunications company, we made immediate, exciting innovations in response to track the spread of the virus. Using Telia’s established platform, Crowd Insights, we used anonymized and aggregated movements data to understand travel patterns. These insights provided the Public Health Agency of Sweden with up-to-date public migration insights so they could assess strategies to slow the virus spread.
We compared the impact of different national strategies in combating COVID-19 as multiple solutions were implemented across Nordic countries. Our analyses were broadcast locally and nationally. This is a great example of when our work is meaningful—we made a difference for Telia and beyond.

I spend my days analyzing life-changing data and interacting with clients to perfect our systems. Each new project is exciting, and I believe my learning curve is very steep.
There is a feeling at Accenture that nothing is impossible. Being surrounded by so many competent colleagues is invaluable. I am truly inspired to develop and improve myself.
In my spare time, I love boating in the archipelago of Stockholm, which consists of about 30,000 islands. To me, being on a boat in nature beats everything. I also love photography, playing tennis, enjoying food and music—and especially sharing it with friends and family.

Nurturing and widening your personal network and being a continuous learner makes a huge difference. I also believe that you should have a commercial and analytical mindset; find interest in a wide range of industries, and always share a positive atmosphere. Doing so makes it so much more fun to work!
