Professor Nursing, School of Education and Learning
Researcher in Health and Welfare. Development leader in the nursing program.

 I am Professor of Nursing at Dalarna University in the Department of Nursing. I have a position as development manager for the nursing program. I am originally qualified as a nurse, have a PhD in architecture and have since worked across a number of academic environments in nursing, architecture and health services with a focus on architecture and its impact on the patient's health and well-being. Ever since I graduated in healthcare architecture, I have devoted myself to research to provide evidence on the built environment and its impact on the health and well-being of older people and patients with stroke. Today I combine my knowledge of nursing and architecture in my research. I lead several projects with a focus on care and rehabilitation at home for people with frail health. My research includes person-centered care, participation, and support for self-care - always with a question about how the environment looks like and is experienced. Is it promoting or hindering?
