Since 2001 parttime employed as speech-language pathologist at Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Graduated as a speech-language pathologist in 1998. In 2011, I presented my thesis "The challenge of communication during home mechanical ventilation". Currently working as a researcher at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Department of Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitation, Division of Speech and Language Pathology at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg.
