Personal profile


Since January 2023, I am a PhD student in the research group Rehabilitation Medicine at Lund Univerity. In 1995 I received my physiotherapist degree and in 2016 my Master of Medicine degree in the field of physiotherapy. In 2018, I gained specialist expertise in the field of pain and pain rehabilitation. In addition to academic training, I also have a basic psychotherapy education in CBT. Clinically, I work as a physiotherapist at Region Skåne's clinic for Children and adolescents with long-term pain.

My research interest is long-term pain in children and adolescents and how cognitive and emotional interpretations of pain, in both the child and the parent, affect the child's behavior and level of functioning.  My research aims to create the conditions to measure pain-related fear in Swedish children and adolescents with long-term pain and their parents and to investigate how this experience relates to other factors that we know affect the child's function and quality of life.

Main supervisors are Professor Jan Lexell and co-supervisor PhD Sophie Jörgensen and Associate Professor Marcelo Rivano Fischer.
