I work as a teacher and researcher at the Unit of Physiotherapy. In my research I focus on implementation and effects of injury prevention exercise programmes in sports. 

Injury prevention and training effects

I am a teacher at the physiotherapy programme with particular focus on physical exercise. 

In my research I am part of SWIPE, Sport Without Injury ProgrammE, with focus on the training effects and implementation of the Swedish neuromuscular training programmes Knee Control and Knee Control+ in team sports. I also take part in projects studying effects of structured training on menopausal symptoms.
