I am a PhD student in General Medicine and my research revolves around e-health and the treatment of urinary incontinence in connection to the Tä ( project.

One of the focus areas in my research is to evaluate the effect of a new smartphone app, Tät®II, as treatment for urgency and mixed urinary incontinence in women. The app has been developed in our research project as a sequel to our previous app Tät®. Read more about our apps and studies at www.tä (

In another study I will, through interviews and user tests, explore different factors (such as socioeconomics, migration background and eHealth literacy) that could affect the ability of people with various backgrounds to access eHealth solutions. I hope this might contribute to new knowledge about how eHealth can be made available to more people.
