I received my PhD from the University of Gothenburg, 2009, with the dissertation “Strength training for physical performance and injury prevention in sports -Individualised and supervised training for female athletes”. My current research area is on traumatic knee injury in young female athletes and injury panorama in padel. My research focuses on modifiable factors, such as the role of leg muscle strength on neuromuscular control strategies, and risk of traumatic knee injury in sports with regards to gender disparity.
