About me

I defended my thesis ”Managing technology in everyday activities: A study of older adults with dementia, MCI, and no cognitive impairment” in  2011. In the thesis, I studied the gap between the technologically developed society and the possibilities for people who live and age with cognitive impairment (due to dementia or mild cognitive impairment, MCI) to use technology and to participate in activities at home and in the society. The general aim of the thesis was to generate new knowledge of the ability to manage technology in everyday life activities among older adults with or without cognitive impairment, how this ability can be assessed, and how knowledge of this can be translated into healthcare practice.

After the dissertation, I have had post-doctoral positions at Luleå University of Technology (LTU) and at KI. At LTU, I studied assessments of the ability to use technology and different aspects of technology use among persons with acquired brain injury and on KI I have continued the work I started as a PhD-student. Today I work as assistant professor and postdoc at the Division of Occupational Therapy at KI. I am a member of the research group CACTUS (Cognitive Accessibility and Technology Use when Ageing in home and Society) led by Professor Louise Nygård. My research focus is mainly on different aspects of evaluating and supporting the ability to use technology in everyday life among older adults with and without cognitive impairment. The evaluations Everyday Technology Use Questionnaire (ETUQ) and Management of Everyday Technology Assessment (META) are often used.
