About me

Assistant professor since September 2021 at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology, Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology at the Karolinska Institutet (KI).

Research description

My main research interest is in how treatment effects should be evaluated based on clinical relevance and on an individual level in speech- and language therapy studies.

I collaborate, and mainly contribute with knowledge in research methods and statitics, in a number of research areas at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology, KI.

  1. Within the research area Early Development and Disorders of Speech, I am the principal driver in a systematic review, and meta-analysis, of the effectiveness of speech- and language pathology treatment for individuals born with a cleft lip and/or palate. I also collaborate in a project on screening for early speech disorders based on childrens babbling debute.
  2. Within the research area Voice function and voice disorders, I collaborate in an international evaluation of feminizing voice therapy for transwomen. I mainly contribute with knowledge on evaluating treatment based on clinical relevance.
  3. Within the research area Speech and language disorders in adults, I am co-supervisor to doctoral student Ineke Samson who investigates the impact of stuttering on young females and males.
    • Larger reported impact of stuttering in teenage females, compared to males – A comparison of teenagers’ result on Overall Assessment of the Speaker’s Experience of Stuttering (OASES) https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jfludis.2020.105822
  4. Within the research area Speech and language disorders in children and adolescents, I collaborate in a project evaluating the effects of language preeschools for children with developmental language delay. I also collaborate in a project on the diagnosis of children with apraxia of speech

I also function as a resource in research methods and statistics at the Dvision of Speech and Language pathology, KI.
