My focus is on implementation science, specifically the implementation of health promotion and digital tools in health- and social care settings.

Research interests

Implementing evidence-based interventions for health promotion in routine healthcare

My research focuses on barriers and facilitators for implementing health promotion in routine healthcare. Current research projects study the use of digital tools in health promotion practice and the implementation of novel practice model for mental health care. I am also responsible for teaching and supervising Implementation Science students on master and doctoral levels at Linköping University as well as other universities in Sweden and abroad.
