Professional work

I graduated as a physiotherapist in 2011 from Lund University. My clinical background is in home based rehabilitation, mainly for elderly people and often with several different diseases, including Parkinson's disease and dementia. 

Research

As of August 2018, am I a PhD student at the institution of Health Sciences.

Belonging to the research group “Active and Healthy Aging”, my research projects are connected to different motor aspects of neurodegenerative disease. The initial part of my PhD studies is connected to the project Home and Health in people Ageing with Parkinson's disease  My main supervisor is Maria H Nilsson and my assistant supervisors are Niklas Mattsson and Stina Jonasson. The data (existing) in this part is from the project ”Home and health in People Aging with Parkinson´s Disease” (PI: Maria Nilsson).

The latter part of my PhD studies is connected to the project Motor-ACT, which is part of the larger project: BIOFINDER II and will focus on gait aspects and the association with brain pathology in people with mild cognitive impairment or subjective cognitive decline compared to healthy controls.

The overall aims of these projects are to 1) identify predictive factors of concerns about falling and perceived walking difficulties, 2) gain an increased understanding of how different motor aspects relate to brain pathology and brain ageing, and how they change over time, 3) improve the possibilities for early detection of people at risk of cognitive decline/developing dementia.
