I have been a doctoral student in the Rehabilitation Medicine Research Group since 2013. It was during my project work at medical school that I first came into contact with the research field that lead to my thesis project. I took my degree in medicine from Lund University in June 2013 and finished my research internship at Skåne University Hospital in Lund in november 2016. I am now doing my residency in rehabilitation medicine at Skåne University Hospital Lund , in parallel with my PhD studies.
For my research I am studying the life situation for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), focusing on life satisfaction (LS). My aim is to contribute to the knowledge about LS and factors that affect LS in people with Parkinson’s disease. As part of the project I am investigating how to measure LS and the effects of personal and environmental factors on LS in persons with PD. I am also exploring the lived experience of PD and how to influence LS in this population. My research includes both quantitative and qualitative methods. My main supervisor is Jan Lexell and assisting supervisors are Lars Jacobsson and Christina Brogårdh.
