Om mig

I am a designer and researcher with a PhD in medical science from Karolinska Institutet (2021). I am interested in academic-community partnerships to develop useful knowledge and create meaningful change through participatory action research, particularly in the field of health promotion and in relation to vulnerable or marginalized people, aging, severe illness, and the end-of-life. My PhD research was a participatory action research project called Studio DöBra. Studio DöBra was a community-based arts initiative about dying, death, and loss, involving children (9 y/o) and older adults (most 80+). Goals were to support community engagement with end-of-life issues and create opportunities for intergenerational interaction between children and older adults. Studio DöBra was developed and studied in collaboration with community organizations such as meeting places for older adults, artistic and cultural organizations, and after-school centers.
