About me

I'm a speech and language pathologist who defended my thesis "Medical decision-making capacity among geriatric patients with and without dementia : communication-based approaches for assessment and facilitation" in March 2019 at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology, Karolinska Institutet.

In September 2019 I started a post-doc position in the CACTUS-group, led by professor Louise Nygård, at the Division of Occupational Therapy, KI. Together with several other researchers and graduate students, I now work within the project "Participation in places and activities in public space as perceived by people with cognitive impairment".
