About me

  • I received my Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) in 2006 from
    University of Western Sydney, Australia, and her Master’s Degree in Public
    Health (Stress Prevention) from Karolinska Institutet in 2007. In 2014
    I defended my thesis “Distress, Emotional reactivity and Fatigue following
    Breast Cancer: A theoretical Approach and a Randomised Intervention Study”
    at Uppsala University. My research focuses on the psychosocial consequences
    (quality of life, distress and fatigue) after different type of trauma, such
    as injuries and life threatening disease.
