About me

I am a registered nurse. For many years, I have been working in intensive care units in Region Stockholm. In 2013, I became doctor of medicine. Today, I am active as docent and research group leader in the research group of Anaesthesia and intensive care at Södersjukhuset: https://ki.se/kisos/anestesi. I am the main supervisor of three PhD students and the co-supervisor of five.

Research description

In general, my research interest is in the area of physical, psychological and cognitive recovery after acute life-threatening diseases. In most studies, I have used data from national and/or regional cohort studies, but I also have experiences in qualitative research.
