About me

  • I am a registered physiotherapist with a PhD in medical science from Karolinska Institutet. I defended my doctoral thesis "Balance &

  • Gait in Parkinson's disease: from Perceptions to Performance" in 2020. I am currently an SFO-V fellow and postdoctoral researcher at the Division of Physiotherapy, and a member of the Franzén research group. I am also affiliated to Karolinska University Hospital and Stockholm Sjukhem.


  • I primarily conduct research connected to the STEPS (Support for home Training using Ehealth in Parkinson's disease) trial, which is a collaborative project between Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm Sjukhem. The project evaluates the effect of individually adapted, eHealth-delivered, home training for people with Parkinson's disease (PD). In my research, I also evaluate how primary care can optimize the clinical assessment of people with PD by integrating wearable sensors for motion analysis.


  • I am a member of the Franzén research group where the focus is on  

  • translational research from exploring neuronal mechanisms to clinical
    interventions/implementation in the field of neurological and geriatric 
  • rehabilitation.
