I have a bachelor of science in nursing and have worked as a registered nurse at the Karolinska University hospital in Stockholm since 2009. My special interests are how health and quality of life can be maintained when a person has a chronic condition. With a background in gender studies I investigates how people are labelled and categorised within systems of power and the consequences when people are treated differently due to their gender, ethnicity, sexuality or health status.
I am a member of the Innovative Care research group at Karolinska Institutet as a PhD student and a member of the National research school in Care Science.

My PhD project involves how disease-related stigma effects health-related quality of life for people living with hiv in Sweden. My most resent work handles how hiv-related stigma can be measured among people living with hiv in Sweden, so that changes in stigma can be tracked over time and stigma-reducing interventions can be evaluated.
