Research and development areas

My main interests are how occupational performance may be impaired in individuals due to health factors and environmental factors, and how occupational performance may be remediated and maintained through occupational therapy and other rehabilitative means.

Work areas

Through my affiliation to Programme for Rehabilitation, VIA, I participate in the research projects OPTIM-PARK and CO-OP.

As lecturer in the Department of Occupational Therapy, I mainly teach at 6th semester, in quality development, scientific methods and occupational science.

As an international coordinator at VIA Department of Occupational Therapy, I work with ingoing and outgoing international exchange primarily for lecturers. In addition, I facilitate cooperation between  VIA Department of Occupational Therapy and occupational therapy departments abroad concerning  professional development, such as cooperation on shared OT courses.
