Erika Vykouk

The Language-loving Rocker

From a small village in the southwest of Slovakia Erika headed to the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague to combine learning a new language and diving into the world of chemistry. Before she found her happy place in pharmacovigilance, she took a detour into research in physical chemistry resulting in a PhD degree.

Erika has been with DREHM since 2022, as a enthusiastic member of the Dedicated Pharmacovigilance team. Challenge, a variety of different tasks and the possibility to utilize the languages she speaks is what she loves about pharmacovigilance.

In her free time, she loves to play strategic board games, read Hungarian, Czech and English books, learn Finnish or attend concerts – especially those where the music is loud because rock and metal make her heart beat faster and fill up with joy!
