My research focuses on activity and participation in people with different neurological disorders, mainly Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke. I have a specific interest in occupational therapy and rehabilitation interventions that can improve everyday life for this group, especially for those who have fatigue and cognitive impairments as a result from the neurological disorder.

I am head of the research group "Occupational therapy and occupational science", and I am also  affiliated to CASE (Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments), at Lund University.

I am involved in teaching and as a course leader at undergraduate, and graduate levels at the Occupational Therapy program, and the master program in medical sciences. At present, I am an assistant supervisor for two PhD students (Emma Carlstedt, a reg. nurse, and Anna Norlander, a reg physiotherapist). Both projects focus on participation in people with stroke.

Professional work

I also hold a position as an occupational therapist at the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Skåne University Hospital, Lund-Malmö, where I have been working since 1992.
