New doctoral student at the Division of Physiotherapy, NVS.

What is your mission at NVS?/What will you be working with?

I am employed as a doctoral student in Anna Karin Welmer’s research group at the Division of Physiotherapy, and will work on the project "Skadligt stillasittande på äldre dagar – i riktning mot individanpassade interventioner”. 

What do you look forward to the most in your new position?

I am looking forward to immersing myself in my new subject area properly, and starting to work with my whole brain! I really see it as a luxury to be able to spend all my days thinking, problematizing, and learning new things.

Where have you been active before and what have you done earlier?

I graduated from KI in the spring of 2013 and have since worked clinically in primary care for a while, and with insurance medical investigations for several years. Most recently, I come from the rheumatology clinic at Danderyd Hospital, where I was involved in starting up a new multiprofessional rehabilitation activity.

When you are not working, what do you do for recreation?

In my free time, I spend a lot of time with my two children and my family, which consists of both siblings, parents, and seven nieces and nephews of different ages. In the winter, there is a lot of long-distance skating and skiing, and in the summer, mostly swimming, gardening, and sailing. I rarely rest, but I like to when the opportunity arises!

Are you reading a book at the moment? Which one?

Right now, I’m reading När vi var samer by Mats Jonsson. Generally, I’m a real history nerd and love literature with historical connections.

Tell us about the most beautiful place you have visited? 

I am very fond of grand nature experiences, so the most beautiful must still be northern Norrland, and the expanses around Abisko and Kiruna. Hard to beat! But Svenska Högarna out in the Stockholm archipelago are also not bad…

What makes you happy?

When my children put on their outerwear by themselves in the morning, then the day is made!
