I work as a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Sociology at Umeå University. Right now I am running a newly started research project with the aim to, using both quantitative and qualitative methods, investigate how stigma-related emotions such as shame and guilt affect self-management in patients with COPD. At the Department of Community Medicine and Rehabilitation, I am part of a research group that conducts research on eHealth as a support for self-management in patients with COPD. To a limited extent, I also teach in the Physiotherapy program.

My research focuses on how self-management can be supported in patients with COPD and explore current COPD care. I work a lot with qualitative methods in the form of individual interviews and workshops to capture experiences of the patients themselves, but also health care professionals who work with the patient group. I also use surveys to collect data on this subject. When developing eHealth tools, it is important to take part of the wishes and views of future users, therefore I have worked with co-creation processes with patients with COPD, relatives and health care professionals.

I am a registered physiotherapist since 2006 and took a master's degree in physiotherapy in 2012. In November 2018, I defended my dissertation COPD in primary care. Exploring conditions for implementation of evidence-based interventions and eHealth. During 2019-2020, I was the senior research assistant at the Department of Community Medicine and Rehabilitation at Umeå University. I worked with evaluating the use of the COPD web and with the development of the eHealth tool My COPD. Since January 2021, I have been a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Sociology.
