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 interests include collaborative learning, web based communities and the use of IT for continuous learning, with a focus on practical applications in the health area. I run research in the field of web based health communities for self-help groups. Over the years, many in-depth studies have been carried out of online conversations in health communities. My recent research focuses on the design of web based self-help systems for stress management.
I am Deputy Head of Department (from January 1, 2015).
