About me

  • I graduated from Karolinska Institutet in 2013, as a "sjukgymnast", I have
    later chosen to change my credentials to physiotherapist. I have mainly
    worked in primary care clinically but also in sports medicine in handball and
    soccer at various levels. My research interest became greater when I studied
    for my master's in sports science at Linnaeus University. During my master's
    thesis, I contacted a tendinopathy researcher at Monash University. We are
    still in contact today and write articles together. I have now completely
    changed my research field, and I am doing my doctoral position at Pernilla
    Lagergren's group in oesophagal and gastric cancer.


  • In two of my sub-studies, I will use data from an ongoing cohort study on
    people who have undergone surgery for oesophagal cancer. Here I will
    investigate how disease-specific symptoms change over time and whether these
    have any association with a certain number of modifiable factors. I will also
    examine the prevalence of many health-related outcome measures up to 8 years
    after surgery. In a third study, I will collect self-care advice from gastric
    and oesophagal cancer patients and compile these.
