I am currently pursuing a PhD at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology. I graduated with a Master of Science in Speech Pathology and Therapy at Karolinska Institutet in 1995 and I have a Licentiate Degree in Speech Pathology from Karolinska Institutet, 2004. I have international experience from being a PhD student at City University London and from working as a coordinator at INSEAD graduate business school in Fontainebleau, France, and as a clinical research associate in Paris.
My research is in the field of work-related voice disorders and voice ergonomics with focus on methods for monitoring of voice use in daily life and risk factor to vocal health related to environmental noise.
Aims of the current projects are to:
- Explore relations between vocal behaviour, self-reported voice symptoms and noise levels in women with vocally demanding professions
- Be able to contribute to voice ergonomic recommendations through an increased understanding of how voice use is affected by environmental noise
