I am an Associate Professor (docent) in the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV), Stockholm University, Sweden. I hold a PhD degree in computer and systems sciences. My research interest is in community informatics, systems theory and the use of ICT for continuous and collaborative learning, with a focus on practical applications in the health area. I run research in the field of online health communities for self-help groups. Over the years, many in-depth studies have been carried out of conversations in the health communities. The past years have been dedicated to the design of holistic online and mobile systems targeting different health concerns and groups of people. My recent research focuses on self-help systems for stress management.
I am Deputy Head of Department (from January 1, 2015).
