I earned my doctoral degree at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology in 2017. My dissertation examined the female voice in vocally demanding professions using portable voice accumulators. From the Karolinska Institutet I also have a licentiate degree from 2004 and a Master of Science in Speech Pathology and Therapy from 1995. I have previously been employed as a research assistant and course coordinator at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology. I have international experience from being a PhD student at City University in London and from working as a coordinator at INSEAD graduate business school in Fontainebleau, France, and as a clinical research associate in Paris. I am currently pursuing a postdoc within the research and teaching unit of Human Communication Science, School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health, Department of Biomedical Engineering and Health Systems, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
My research is in the field of work-related voice disorders and voice ergonomics with focus on development of digital technology for monitoring of vocal behaviour in daily life and risk assessment for sustainable vocal health in communication intensive environments
At the study programme in Speech and Language Pathology, Karolinska Institutet, I teach voice and speech disorders, science theory and research methodology, with focus on qualitative methods. I have also been responsible for workshops in computer based voice and speech analysis. I supervise graduation theses at the study programme in Speech and Language Pathology, KI, and degree projects in technology and health at the Royal Institute of Technology where I am also course responsible for the course degree project in technology and health and work environment development.
