Responsibilities:

Research:

My main interest is children and adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP). I am a member of the CP research group (http://www.ntnu.no/lbk/cp), conducting research on etiology, clinical picture and comorbidity. The leader of the group is Professor Torstein Vik (http://www.ntnu.no/ansatte/torstein.vik).

My research is on postural control in children and adolescents with CP, and in October 2014 I defended the thesis entitled:

Assessment of Trunk Control in Children and Adolescents with Cerebral Palsy: A neglected perspective? (http://ntnu.diva-portal.org/smash/search.jsf?dswid=-6041)

In the work with the thesis I also focused on measurement properties of assessment tools (http://www.ntnu.no/lbk).
