I have been a doctoral student in the Rehabilitation Medicine Research group since 2016. I graduated in medicine from Lund University in June 2015 and in July 2019 I recieved my license to practice as a physician. Since July 2019 I am a resident in Rehabilitation medicine at Skåne University Hospital. I am now combining clinical work with research.

In my research I am studying the salutogenic concept Sense of Coherence (SOC) in persons with late effects of polio. My main focus is to investigate factors associated with SOC which may improve rehabilitation, as SOC is linked to life satisfaction and successful adaptation to a disability. My project includes both quantitative and qualitative studies. My main supervisor is Jan Lexell and assisting supervisors are Christina Brogårdh and Lars Jacobsson.
