Personal profile

Research

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Rehabilitation Medicine Research Group. I defended my PhD-thesis Sports-related Injuries and Illnesses in Paralympic athletes in December 2019. The overall aim of this thesis was to describe and gain an in-depth understanding of the epidemiology of sports-related injuries and illnesses in Swedish Paralympic athletes, in order to assist the future development of evidence-based preventive measures adapted for Paralympic athletes. Since 2019 I´m working as a postdoctoral researche in the Rehabilitation Medicine Research Group. In my post-doc project I will continue with long-term and prospective athlete health monitoring of Para athletes within the project "Safe and Healthy Parasport". Another aim of this project is to develop an eHealth based prevention program. The project is funded by The Swedish Research Council for Sports, Folksam, Promobilia and The Swedish Paralympic Committee. I´m also a teacher at the Physiotherapy programme. 

I have been working in the Rehabilitation Medicine Research Group since March 2013 and I started my PhD studies in 2014. I took my degree in Physiotherapy in 2010 and earned a Master’s degree in Sports science/Sports Medicine at Lund University in 2012. In 2009 I was an exchange student at Melbourne University. Beside my work at the university I am a Physiotherapist at the Swedish Paralympic Committee and Vårdhuset Malmö.
