About me

I have been a PhD student since 2018 and in March 2020 I had my half time seminar. I am a physiotherapist and am combining my PhD project with clinical work at the National Childhood Obesity Center at the Karolinska University Hospital

Research description

My PhD thesis focus on the use of digital technology in childhood obesity treatment. The aim is to evaluate the effects of Mobile Health, through apps and a web based support system, and to investigate the families' and clinicians' experiences of the treatment. The thesis also aims to facilitate the clinical evaluation of cardiorespiratory fitness in children with obesity and to evaluate potential  associations between cardiorespiratory fitness and cardiometabolic risk markers among children with obesity.
