Om mig

Jag är medicine doktor (2017) och arbetar sedan vårterminen 2019 vid Karolinska Institutet inom sjuksköterskeprogrammet och specialistsjuksköterskeprogrammet med inriktning barn och ungdom. Min kliniska erfarenhet har jag främst inom neonatalvård, barnintensivvård och barndiabetesvård.


Mitt forskningsområde är förberedelser av ungdomar  med typ 1 diabetes inför överföringen till vuxensjukvården. Jag samarbetar med en forskargrupp vid Göteborgs universitet i projektet Stepsones-DIAB.
