PhD Candidate in the interdisciplinary research group of Geriatrics, Movement and Stroke (GeMS) at the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science, NTNU. Master's degree in Clinical Health Science, NTNU, 2014. Authorised physiotherapist, Sør-Trøndelag University Collage, 2010.

Working mainly with research on rehabilitation after stroke, and is involved in the clinical trial the Life After Stroke trial (the LAST-study). In this study we are testing a model to maintain as high functional levels as long as possible, for individuals affected by stroke. In the sub-study, the LAST-Fitness study, we investigate the effect of the rehabilitation model on aerobic capacity, physical activity and movement ability after stroke.
