Postdoctoral researcher

About me

I am a registered nurse with a PhD, still clinically active. I am currently working half time as a postdoctoral researcher in the research group ICare (link further down) and half time at Karolinska University Hospital.

My area of interest is mostly to enhance the life situation for persons who have undergone gastrointestinal surgery.

Research description

I defended my thesis "Person-centered care supported by an interactive app for patients with pancreatic cancer following surgery" in May 2019.


The project evaluated how using an app for self-care and symptom reporting to a contact nurse can enhance the life situation for patients who have undergone the Whipple procedure. My future research will focus on how symptom reporting via eHealth can be implemented in clinical standard care.
