Personal profile


My research is focusing on enabling activity and participation, mainly 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 primarily focus on teaching self-management skills that enable participants to engage in everyday life activities, despite disability.

I am head of the research group "Sustainable occupations in a life course perspective". I am also  affiliated to CASE (Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments), at Lund University.
