Personal profile

Research

I am an associate professor in medical psychology and Group Leader of the Applied Gerontology Research Group. I am also the Scientific Coordinator at the Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments (CASE).  After joining CASE in 2012, my research has focused on the relationships among the environment, health/function, and psychosocial factors in the ageing population. I predominantly take a public health approach in combination with inter- and trans-disciplinary teams. To increase the relevance and impact of research findings, most projects include active user involvement (e.g. government agencies, policy makers, industry, older people, etc.).

I am involved with a number of research projects (see projects tab for complete list) and PI for three ongoing research projects: “HoT-Age: Experienced housing aspects and life changes: Good ageing in one's own home”, “Transdisciplinary research to optimize active and healthy ageing in and out of the home,” and “Technologies in the home to support independence and well-being while ageing: “The New Normal?” post pandemic.” 

I am also the director of a new research infrastructure, Movement & Reality lab (MoRe-lab) at the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University. MoRe-Lab is currently operating at a temporary location since Autumn 2021 and will be fully operational at the new Forum Medicum in 2023. MoRe-Lab is designed to study functioning and disability from different perspectives: preclinical, clinical, simulated real life environments and in real life. Within MoRe-Lab we strive to establish a novel research orientation that we denote as experimental health sciences, which develops, evaluates and applies new methods and innovative solutions to optimize functioning in everyday life and expand knowledge of human health and behavior across the life span. See infrastructure tab for full details.
