About me

  • Associate professor.

    I completed my doctoral degree in 2014 at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (KTH), with a thesis focusing on perceptual 

  • consequences of misarticulated speech in children – how these children’s 
  • speech are perceived by adult listeners and by the children themselves.

    Apart from my M.Sc degree in SLP (Lund, 2007), I also have a M.Sc degree in computational linguistics (Uppsala, 2000).


  • My research concerns children's speech and language disorders, with a specific focus on everyday consequences, for example, in terms of making oneself understood, and participating in communication. This has been the focus in the (now finished) project 

  • Functional consequences of misarticulation in children's continuous speech. In the project SPETS (project web page in Swedish), we explore how speech/language intervention affect language functioning and communication in daily life for children with developmental language disorder (DLD).


  • I also have a background and interest in speech technology, and particularly, how it can be used in speech-language therapy and research. In TEFLON, I collaborate with other Nordic colleagues in the development of a speech-training app, intended for use for learners of the Nordic languages, as well as for children with speech sound disorder (SSD).
