I am a lecturer in Medical Humanities, specifically literature and medicine. I am employed at The Centre for Languages and Literature, while my teaching is placed at the Medical Faculty, where I teach, supervise, and contribute to develop new ways of bringing the humanities into the medical programme.
My background is in Literary Studies, where I 2010 completed my thesis, Litterära besvär. Skildringar av sjukdom i samtida svensk prosa (Literary Ills. Portrayals of Illness in Contemporary Swedish Fiction). In my further research I continue to explore literature's role within the field of Medical Humanities.
