About me

  • My vision is to contribute to increased quality in rehabilitation of children
    with disabilities.
    I am a trained epidemiologist and physiotherapist and completed my PhD
    studies in May 2020 in the research team of Professor Ann-Christin
    Eliasson at the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, Karolinska
    Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. My project focused on the prediction of
    unilateral cerebral palsy in infants at high risk and evaluation of bimanual


  • My interest is on prediction modeling and assessment tools in children with
    developmental disabilities, in particular cerebral palsy. Currently, I am
    investigating ways for early prediction of unilateral cerebral palsy in
    infants and the predictive validity of the Hand Assessment for Infants (HAI),
    a standardized test to measure both hands use and to quantify asymmetry
    between the upper limbs in infants aged 3-12 months with high risk of
    unilateral cerebral palsy.
    In past projects, I was involved in systematic literature reviews and
    investigated measurement properties of the patient-reported Children’s
    Hand-use Experience Questionnaire in relation to the Assisting Hand
    Assessment (AHA), and the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory
    (PEDI-G) compared to the Functional Independence Measure for Children
    Further interests are: child health and development, health outcome measures,
    measurement properties, research methodology, rehabilitation medicine,
    performance in daily life, effectiveness of treatment
