My primary research area is persistent pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain. In the research group, we have investigated risk factors and the long-term consequences of persistent pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain through both questionnaires and deep interviews with women 12 years after delivery. By using subgrouping based on psychosocial characteristics, we have been able to study how women with persistent pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain differ from each other with the intention to better customize treatment in the future. 
 
Since January 2017, I have been the primary data collecting coordinator for Tanzania and Sweden in the project "The Cross-Country Ultrasound Study" (CROCUS). CROCUS is an international research project aiming to investigate obstetricians’’, midwives’, and ultrasonographers’ experiences and view on the role of obstetric ultrasound in relation to clinical management and ethical aspects.
 
I am also the project manager for the international research project “Musculoskeletal complaints in elders - are chiropractors an untapped resource?" that aims to explore chiropractors' experiences and views regarding the treatment and management of patients 55 years or older with musculoskeletal complaints.
