Personal profile


I defended my doctoral thesis at Lund University in 2014 on dizziness and fall prevention among frail elderly people living at home. I investigated risk factors for dizziness and falling, the ability of fall risk indexes to predict falls, older persons' experiences of living with chronic dizziness, as well as the effects of preventative home visits on falls and fall injuries.

After the thesis defence, I received a postdoctoral position at the Institute for Palliative Care in Lund, where I conducted two projects concerning physiotherapy initiatives within palliative care, as well as wishes and priorities among people within specialised palliative care. 

At HKR I am involved in two reserach project and are co-supervisor for two doctoral students.

I am also involved in the reserach projects ReScreen and ReMig at Lund University, that explore optimal screening for and individualized rehabilitation for swedish and imigrated women after breast cancer surgery. In februari 2023 I was promoted to Associate Professor.

I received my Master's Degree from Jönköping School of Health and Welfare in 2007, with a paper about home-living elderly people's view of physiotherapy in the home.
