Physiotherapist and senior researcher.
I received my PhD from Karolinska Institutet Sweden in 2001 and became associate professor in Physiotherapy in 2010. My clinical as well as research experiences expands over several European countries in congenital and neurodevelopmental disabilities in children.
My research fields include neuro-orthopedic diagnoses where findings regarding gait and orthoses have been implemented in clinic. In children with brain lesions, the perceptual-motor system perspective has come to determine my view of motor development, also as a book-author. The research articles on the above mentioned subjects cover methods from laboratory gait and motion analysis to prospective follow-up studies and parent-reported quality of live, to working memory in the reaching and navigational spaces.
