I have a bachelor of science in nursing and have worked as a registered nurse at the Karolinska University hospital in Stockholm since 2009. My special interest is the health and quality of life of persons with chronic conditions.
I am a member of the Innovative Care research group at Karolinska Institutet as a PhD student and a member of the National research school in Care Science.

My PhD project involves how HIV-related stigma is perceived by persons living with HIV in Sweden and how HIV-related stigma can be measured and used as a variable in analysis of persons health. I study the relations between hiv-related stigma, health-related quality and life and treatment outcomes in a Swedish context. I also study how hiv-related stigma can be measured among people living with hiv in Sweden, so that changes in stigma can be tracked over time and stigma-reducing interventions can be evaluated.
