About me

  • I am a doctoral student, nurse and urotherapist with complementary education in clinical 

  • sexology. I combine my doctoral studies with clinical work at Danderyd's
    hospital. I am a board member of the Swedish Nursing Society.


  • My doctoral studies focus on sexuality in young adults with cancer and I do my research within the 

  • Fex-Can project, Fertility and sexuality after cancer. We have followed a population-based cohort of young adults with cancer for five years following diagnosis to investigate the cancer and cancer treatment's impact on sexuality. My part of the project also involves evaluating a web-based intervention aiming at reducing sexual problems.
    Additionally, I am involved in clinical research, where we in a multicenter RCT have 

  • investigated transanal irrigation as treatment for patients with major bowel
    dysfunction following rectal cancer treatment. We are currently looking at long-term follow-up of transanal irrigation as well as analyzing the results from the patient interviews about experiences of using transanal irrigation.


  • I have a teacher's diploma and five years of 

  • full-time teaching experience.

    I regularly teach at hospitals and universities.
