I work as coordinator of Jakobsberg’s Academic Primary Health Care center and I'm a scientific leader at the Research and Development unit for the care of older people in Stockholm County Council. In addition I work as teacher at NVS, Division of Physiotherapy, KI. These three positions enables me to combine research, implementation and education.
I graduated as a physiotherapist in 1991. In 1999 I received my bachelor degree and in 2007 my doctoral degree at Karolinska Institutet.
My focus is on physical activity and exercise and the effects of those in vulnerable older people in different settings and contexts; community-dwelling vulnerable older people, rehabilitation in geriatric clinics as well as institutions. My research has thus also focused on evaluating outcome measures in relation to muscle strength and overall physical function. My positions within the County Council give excellent possibilities to conduct clinically relevant research projects and increase the possibility of successful implementation.
