Background and activities
Member of research group for perinatal brain injury at Department of Laboratory Medicine, Women's and Children's Health.
Graduated as a physiotherapist at Oslo University College in 1986 and the degree of PhD in Clinical Medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Tehnology in 2010.
Work experience covers clinical work in hospital and community based habilitation/rehabilitation in young infants and children, research activities particular in movement analysis in young infants, as well as teaching and supervision of medical and physiotheraphy students.
Associate Director in 4 ongoing multisite studies predicting Cerebral Palsy and long term motor outcomes by use of clinical and computerized assessment of spontanous infant movements in Norway, India, China and USA.
