Personal profile


I am employed at Kristianstad University as associate professor. My research concerned how depression can be prevented in adolescents using systematic school-based interventions. I also conduct research on sleep, stress and pain in children and adolescents.

I have been a registered nurse since 1998 (Lund University) and completed a one-year training in children's health in 2002 (Malmö University). I have a bachelor of arts in history of religions, and a master's in nursing science (Lund University). I have worked at the Children's Hospital in Lund (1998–2002), as a lecturer at Malmö University (2009), and as a school nurse in Lund (2002–2012). I received the School Nurse of the Year award in Sweden in 2009. I have a PhD in nursing (Lund University, 2016).
