About me

  • I'm a lecturer and researcher at the Division of Occupational Therapy, at the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society, KI.
    I defended my Ph.D. thesis in 2021, with the title: "Assistive technology and Welfare technology explorations. Aspects of perception, utilisation and decision-making".

    In addition to my position at the division of occupational therapy, I am also associated researcher at Linköpings University and Örebro University.


  • My current area of research is assistive and welfare technology, homerehabilitation, accessibility, and participation in society for people with impairments, especially older adults. I am also interested in the enablers and barriers when home- and health care is provided in ordinary housing and dementia care homes.

    My post doc position was at the divison of physiotherapy, the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society, KI, in project Re@home:


  • This project aims to evaluate the state of home rehabilitation in relation to scientific evidence and the effectiveness on older persons’ well-being, participation and ability in daily activities as well as the older persons satisfaction with the interventions, the collaboration between social service- and health care providers, and level of service utilization.

    In this project at Linköpings University we aim to study how welfare technology is perceived, implemented, and experienced by different actors within municipality elder care and how, and if, welfare technology contributes to the individual's security, activity, participation, and independence

    REDem - paving the way for equality in care delivery


  • The overall aim of this project is to develop working methods that best integrate the organizational, physical, and social environments in dementia homes to meet the needs of people with different linguistic and cultural backgrounds.The project, will be carried out in dementia homes in the municipalities of Halmstad, Stockholm, and Örebro. This should bring us closer to our ultimate goal: to ensure equal and person-centered dementia care for all residents, regardless of their cultural or linguistic background.

    Mobility, participation and inclusion

    This longitudinal project will explore and identify factors, which possibly pose risks for accidents and injuries among people who use wheelchairs, from an intersectional perspective. A further aim is to analyze various problematic situations that can inhibit or make mobility impossible for people of all ages who use wheelchairs in different environments and to raise awareness of issues related to social interaction, accessibility, safety and community planning for people who use wheelchairs.


  • I teach at the undergraduate level in the occupational therapy program and am a
    course coordinator and I supervise at the undergraduate, master, and doctoral levels.
