I'm the program coordinator for the Dietetics program and teach at the department particularly on the later part of the Dietetics program.
My research focuses on how to help patients with head- and neck cancer return to a normal lifestyle after treatment, with focus on nutritional problems.
I took my dietitian degree in 2003 and completed a one year Master's in 2008. After this I worked as a dietitian at the hospital in Örnsköldsvik, primarily in the fields of medicine and primary care. During my years as a PhD student I also worked as a dietitian at the University Hospital of Umeå.
I defended my thesis "Impact of disease and treatment on body weight and eating in patients with head and neck cancer – experiences from a multicenter study" in 2013. The main aim of the research was to study nutritional problems for patients with head and neck cancer with specific focus on the time after the termination of treatment.Close
