About me

I am a social worker and professor in social work. My research interests lie in the field of disability, especially disabled people's opportunities to participate in social life, in meeting with social services and health care, as well as in education. In recent years, I have led interdisciplinary research projects focused on user-involvement, person-centered social practices, how digital support for clients / patients can promote participation, and how implementation of new interventions can be promoted in social services and health care. I also run a project that studies how young people without work and studies can be supported to make a move towards work, participation and a sense of belonging.
I teach mainly about disabilities, user involvement and research methods.
