An ongoing project, in collaboration with researchers at Karolinska Institutet, focuses on accessibility and conditions for participation in activities and places in public spaces for people with cognitive disabilities.
I am also involved in a project to develop new knowledge about the conditions for technology use among the oldest old and people with cognitive disabilities living in their homes, in relation to the demands the technology makes on those who use it.
• I am running the project “Can I manage this? Technology, health and ageing in the oldest old” together with Professor Katarina Hjelm and Senior Lecturer Åsa Larsson Ranada at Linköping University (LiU), and project coordinator Ann-Christine Larsson at Testmiljö Norrköping.
• The project is part of “Activity and participation among older people”, which is one of our themes within occupational therapy research at LiU.
• I collaborate with the research group Cognitive Accessibility and Technology Use when Ageing in home and Society (CACTUS) at Karolinska Institutet (KI).
I teach in the Occupational Therapy programme and on the Faculty of Medicine and Health Science’s Interprofessional Masters Programme. My teaching in the Occupational Therapy programme is primarily in the first and last semester. I supervise and examine students writing their bachelor thesis, and I am the course coordinator of the first bachelor programme course “Occupational therapy, occupation and health” as well as of the course “Activity perspectives on health and rehabilitation” on master level. I also supervise master thesis projects.
