Personal profile


I am currently holding a posistion as an associate researcher at the Department of Health Sciences at Lund University. I have a PhD in gerontology and my research aims to understand the impact of environmental and contextual factors on older adults, and to develop strategies to enhance their health, well-being, and quality of life.

I am involved in several national and international interdisciplinary research projects focusing on late life transitions, housing, and neighborhood environments as well as on care and rehabilitation at home for people with declining health.

Currently I lead two large projects; AGE-HERE focusing the relationship between economic factors (e.g., economic policies) and health among older homeowners, and InHome aiming to develop a new model that integrates environmental factors in rehabilitation after a stroke for a more person-centered service.

I belong to the Applied Gerontology Research Group, affiliated to CASE. I am also affiliated to the research group, Environment, Technology and Participation at Dalarna university. Our common projects focus on the importance of environment for people’s health specifically in healthcare settings.
