Personal profile

Research

I am a full-time Ph.D. student at the Faculty of Medicine belonging to the research group “Active and Healthy Aging". I'm doing my Ph.D in the Generation tech project with Professor Susanne Iwarsson (PI) as my main supervisor. I have a background in sports medicine where I have a master's degree. My expertise includes health promotion, excercise physiology, strength and conditioning programs aswell as tecnological aids for training and everyday life.

The purpose of my research project is to contribute with new knowledge about the interaction between the adoption of technology in a broad perspective and technology promoting active and healthy ageing, and how belonging to a specific generation is related to the interaction and adoption of said technologies. The research will address aging and technology from a generational perspective, in relation to active and healthy ageing. The goal is to increase knowledge of the aging population's attitudes and experiences, needs and desires in order to be able to encourage older people to use technology in their everyday lives and strengthen their participation in society.
