Short presentation

I am a senior lecturer and head of the speech-language pathology program at the department of neuroscience. My research predominantly concerns psychosocial consequenses of aphasia, and supporting and training of significant others of persons with aphasia.

Academic merits: PhD

Presentation of role/work tasks
My research focuses on ”living with aphasia”, in particular the situation of the significant others and what could be done to support them. Further, I am interested in how communicative strategies could be practiced in order to facilitate conversations with a person with aphasia, and if such training could increase the well-being of both the person with aphasia and the significant other. This work demands valid and reliable measures, which is another area of interest.

Job related achievement
I have previously been working as a speech-language pathologist with persons with aphasia at geriatric as well as rehabilitation medicine wards. I defended my doctoral thesis “Aphasia and communication in everyday life” (see below) in 2012. I am head of the Speech-Language Pathology Program at the deparment of neuroscience.

At the Department of neuroscience, I teach about aphasia rehabilitation, qualitative research methods and supervises thesis’s (MSc in speech-language pathology).
