Om mig

Hello!

I'm a doctoral student (2021-2025) at Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Societ (NVS) - Division of Family medicine and Primary care.

I'm a physiotherapist and a pain specialist, with my clinical background in the primary care since 2013.

I'm fascinated by our bodies adaptability and the connection between psychology and biology. I'm passionate about how physical activity can be used in both prevention and treatment of diseases and pain conditions. Without movement, there is no life.
