About me

I'm a doctoral student with a background in public health nursing sciences (Karolinska Institutet) and international public health sciences (Uppsala University).

Before enrolling in doctoral studies I worked as a primary school nurse (age 6–16) in Stockholm, Sweden.

Research description

My PhD project is part of the evaluation of the  A Healthy School Start Plus intervention. The intervention is carried out as a cluster RCT and is aimed to promote healthy dietary and physical activity behaviours and to prevent child obesity in primary schools in disadvantaged areas through parental support (study protocol).

My PhD project focuses predominantly on evaluating the school nurses component of the intervention. In my research I use both quantitative and qualitative methods.
