I am a PhD student in Health science at the Department of Health and Caring Sciences. My thesis focuses the driving forces behind the integration of new technology as a support for health and wellbeing of older people and their informal carers, in the context of the Nordic countries.

I belong to the Swedish Family Care Competence centre, SFCCC (In swedish: Nationellt Kompetenscentrum Anhöriga, NKA) and I am also connected to the Sustainable Care: Connecting People and Systems, a research program at The University of Sheffield.

I'm a member of the Sustainable Care Early Career Researcher Network.

I am a nurse by background with specialism in theatre nursing, and I have previously worked in surgical care, elderly care, primary care and as a theatre nurse.
