I am associate professor and appointed head of the division of occupational therapy at Karolinska Institutet. I am a guest professor at Tokyo Metropolitan University (Japan) and have an research affiliation to Stockholms Sjukhem in Stockholm. My research focus is primarily on occupation and participation intersected with identity, disability, and culture. For example, I am interested in how growing older after international migration challenges ideas of aging in place, how social mechanisms exclude people from the labor market and how this can levied through alternative approaches, as well as how concepts of prevention/promotion can be applied to primary healthcare and community contexts. I draw on various methods often stemming from a naturalistic and participatory paradigm and include narrative inquiry, ethnography, and photovoice. My current pedagogic portfolio includes academic leadership, committee work, and holding courses in undergraduate, masters, and doctoral programs at Karolinska Institutet and internationally.
