I have a Ph.D. in linguistics I am a senior lecturer in disability studies at Halmstad University and a research shcholoar in linguistics here at Lund University. I am currently leading the research project "Gaze behaviour in writing", funded by the Swedish Research Council.

I teach courses in disability studies and special education at Halmstad University and reading and writing related courses at several of the Swedish speech pathology programs.

My main research interests are:

1. Language production - particularly written language production

2. The relationship between spoken language, written language, and "hybrid" commincations technologies, such as TTY:s for deaf people and computer chats.

3. Communication disorders and different types of alternative and augmentative communication, particularly writing aids.

4. Readability, text quality and linguistic accessability of information.
