About me

  • I am Professor of Medical Clinical Ethics in the Stockholm Centre for Healthcare Ethics, Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME), KI.

    My primary research interests include ethical issues related to patients’ perspective and decision-making, the ethics of social care and public health, normative ethics and methodology of bioethics. Currently I am leading a group that addresses patients’ views and the ethics of precision medicine in hematology within a European consortia (the 3-year project MEET-AML, funded by ERAPerMed. I am also doing the ethics part in another ERAPerMed funded project, RELIABLE, in which we assess personalized preventive strategies for patients in the early stages of Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

    From 2024, I am the principal investigator of the interdisciplinary project "In the best interest of the child? Ethical, legal and empirical assessments of decisions in social service to restrict social contact", funden by the Swedish Research Council (2024-2026) and with researchers from philosophy, public health, law and social work.

    I teach at various courses on ethical issues at KI as well as for health care professionals in various disciplines.

    I am a member of the Ethics Council of Karolinska University Hospital, the Ethics council of Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital, and the Scientific Advisory Committee for the Swedish Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Assessment of Social Services (SBU).
