About me

I have been connected to the Division of Occupational Therapy since 2010, first as a doctoral student and later as a postdoc/lecturer.

Since 2018 I am instead associated, and have a fulltime position as research leader withing the area of elderly at R&D Nordost (FoU Nordost).

Research description

I am a part of the CACTUS research group, led by Professor Louise Nygård, and my research concerns everyday technology use in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

The overall aim of the research project I am involved in is to provide new knowledge about conditions for maintaining and facilitating competent everyday technology use in older adults with MCI.
