Personal profile


My research is about activity and health for the aging population. There are many factors that affect health, where housing and close by surroundings are seen important for opportunities for everyday life activities and participation in the society.

Why and when does a relocation process start? How should a home be designed and what is important in the immediate surrounding for supporting us to live an active life as we age? These are questions that I explore within the framework of the RELOC-AGE research project.

The research is conducted within the Center for Aging and Supportive Environments (CASE), which is a Forte center at Lund University.

My teaching is mainly focused on occupational therapy theory and introducing to the students how theory and different concepts are used in practice to understand and explain activity and occupation. As a teacher, I am interested in how the students use the theory as they develop their professional competence.
