A strong interest of mine is the different ways people make sense of their life experiences. Since my dissertation in May 2010 I have chosen to study people’s meaning making in relation to both health and illness. I have a broad interest in researching health and illness from an emic- etic perspective. This means that I intentionally focus my research towards a qualitative approach. Within this wider framework of qualitative studies I have chosen to direct my main focus towards lifeworld research and existential aspects of illness and health. Therefore my research has an interpretive stance on social reality and human meaning making. The phenomena which I study are immersed in the natural setting of those persons whose thoughts and views I explore.
I have experience as course coordinator since 2002 and as examiner since 2010. My teaching activities includes planning, examination, course evaluation and academic supervision of two to four final degree projects in the Program of nursing, and two to five final degree projects, advanced level/ specialist education in nursing. My teaching activities further include lecturing, seminars, laboratory-education and also teaching on research level/Ph.D. education at the Department of Health Science.
Between 2012- 2015 I was assigned as Faculty program director of the master program in nursing and since 2015 I am assigned as Faculty program director of the nursing program.
