Monika Kawohl is a Principal Statistical Programmer at HMS Analytical Software GmbH in Germany and has 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. Her daily work includes the hands-on application of CDISC standards towards e-submission as well as consulting clients regarding their implementation of SDTM, ADaM and Define-XML. Monika joined the ADaM team in 2009 and has served as a CDISC authorized ADaM Instructor since 2012. She is the current lead of the ADaM metadata sub-team.

She is also a member of the executive committee of the German-speaking CDISC User Network.
