About me

  • I am an oncology nurse and doctoral student enrolled in the Research School of Health Science (2021-2025) and belong to the Wengström Research Group. My research focuses on exercise in the management of cancer.


  • My PhD project EX-MED Cancer Sweden involves live-remote delivery of exercise using a videoconferencing platform in order to improve availability and accessibility of exercise programs for cancer survivors to reduce long-term side effects of cancer and its' treatment and improve quality of life.

    The EX-MED Cancer exercise intervention will be tested in a two-armed RCT with the aim to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention on health-related quality of life, physical function and physical activity whilst at the same time gaining a better understanding of the experience of exercise after treatment for cancer.

    In my research I use both quantitative and qualitative methods.
