I graduated from nursing school (bachelor degree) in June 2007 at Linköping University. Because of my great interest in health promotion and disease prevention, I continued study public health at Uppsala University, from which I graduated in June 2010 (Master degree).  I worked in two different projects targeting prevention and people's living habits before I was accepted as a PhD student at Lund University in September 2012.


I work within a project that focuses on people that live with the consequences of stroke, specifically with cognitive impairments. We want to investigate if the possibility to travel with bus lead to improved participation. This research involves reliability studies of various assessments tools, as well as a pilot study of an intervention targeting self-management for people with cognitive disabilities following stroke. The thesis will include studies using both quantitative and qualitative design. My main supervisor is Professor Susanne Iwarsson, assistant supervisors are Professor Agneta Ståhl and researcher Eva Månsson Lexell.
