About me

  • I am an associate professor in health informatics and a senior lecturer in
    implementation science at the Uppsala MedTech Science &
  • Innovation Centre
    [1]. During 2019/2020 I was a Keane OpenNotes Scholar and a visiting Lecturer
    on Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
    At Uppsala University, I am teaching at the Bachelor’s Programme in
    Biomedical Engineering [2], and am engaged in EIT Health Campus activities
    [3]. 2020 I was awarded the title “Excellent Teacher” at Uppsala


  • My research has focused on user-centered systems that support collaboration
    and patient empowerment. As a member of the DOME research consortium [1] I
    have explored the impact of patients’ access to their electronic health
    records (including notes) through the national Swedish patient portal. As the
    Chair of the Swedish Medical Informatics Association (SFMI) [2], I
    represent Sweden in the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA)
    general assembly. I chair the EFMI Working Group “Citizen Health Data”


  • I have also served as director of studies and program director for the Global
    Master’s Program in Health Informatics [1] between 2014 and 2018, and
    remains affiliated to the Health Informatics Centre [2] at LIME.
