My research focus is on Health Service Innovation with award-winning research on peer support for children cancer-survivors (e.g. SIGCHI Honorable Mention Award, Livestrong Innovation Prize Winner 2014). I created and directed the Bachelor program Digital Design and Innovation at Halmstad University, and received the Accomplished Teacher Pedagogical Merit degree in 2014. Currently, I work as Director of Service Design at inUse in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, and Denver, alongside with academic research on participatory service design at Halmstad University.
