I have one master degree in business adminitration with emphazis on international business and another in health science with emphazis on public health. I also have several years of work experience primarily in human resource management and accounting. Since March 2016 I am a doctoral student in health science with focus on caring sciences.

My research concentrates on persons that frequently visit the psychiatric emergency room. In particular I investigate who these persons are, what kind of needs they have and how health care staff experiences this group and the encounters with them.
