Personal profile


My research is mainly focusing on enabling activity and participation in people with different neurological disorders. I have a specific interest in occupational therapy and rehabilitation interventions that can improve everyday life for people who experience fatigue and cognitive impariments. The interventions mainly focus on teaching self-management skills that enable participants to engage in everyday life activities, despite disability.

I am head of the research group "Occupational therapy and occupational science", and am also  affiliated to CASE (Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments), at Lund University.

I am involved in teaching at undergraduate, and graduate levels as well as at the Occupational Therapy program, and the master program in medical sciences. At present, I am the main supervisor for two doctoral students;  Martin Ringsten, reg. physiotherapist and Katja Appelin, reg. occupational therapist. Martin's project is investigating outdoor mobility in people post-stroke and Katja is performing a long-term follow-up with people who have late effects from polio and participated in a multidisciplinary rehabilitation ten years ago.

Professional work

I also hold a position as an occupational therapist at the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Skåne University Hospital, Lund-Malmö, where I have been working since 1992.
