About me

Registered physiotherapist, specialist competence in orthopedics, PhD. Currently working as postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, and clinically in the Motion Analysis Lab at Karolinska University Hospital. My clinical and research interests include evaluating the impact of musculoskeletal disease and injury on movement and gait patterns.

In 2017 I defended my thesis entitled: “Evaluation of function in individuals with knee osteoarthritis”. The overall aim of the thesis was to evaluate methods used to objectively assess function, including gait patterns, movement strategies, and performance-based function – in individuals with knee osteoarthritis  

Affiliated to University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Department of Clinical Research, since 2020.

Research description

Ongoing research projects

BIOFUNK: The project aims to investigate relationships between clinical presentation, measures of pain and function, and presence of biomarkers in individuals with osteoarthritis. We also want to explore whether these measures can be used to subtype osteoarthritis, and predict treatment effects and trajectory of disease progression. Evaluation of walking ability and gait patterns in children with skeletal dysplasia. Effect of non-surgical treatment on movement patterns in individuals with femoroacetabular impingement (in collaboration with University of Southern Denmark).
