I am a PhD-student and reg. nurse with a master in Global Health from Karolinska Institutet. My master thesis focused on coping strategies & resilience among former girl soldiers in Northern Uganda. I have worked with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Sierra Leone, South Sudan and DRC. In DRC I was involved in the response to the Ebola-outbreak. I have clinical experience from the Primary healthcare, inpatient care and coordination of gynecological daysurgery.
Since August 2017, I am working at Karolinska Institutet in the Health Systems and Policy research group, at the Centre for Research on Healthcare in Disasters and at the National Center for Disaster Psychiatry at Uppsala University.
I am involved in the interdiciplinary project “Ethical challenges in disasters”; to better understand what determinants are crucial to moral stress and moral distress and how that can affect wellbeing among healthcare professionals working in disasters. The project is a collaboration with National Centre for Disaster Psychiatry at Uppsala University and the Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME) at KI.
