I am working as postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Care Research, Western Norway in collaboration with SEFAS, University of Bergen (UIB).

I am an educated nurse with 20 years of working experienc, both the hospital and muncipalities. Additionally, I am an educated human nutritionist (Phd) with research experience from epidemiology related to coronary heart disease. My research has mainly been based on quantitative data analyses.

Currently, I am working as researcher for the LIVE@home.path trial at SEFAS (UIB), with focus on assitive technology and telecare in home dwelling people with dementia. The LIVE@home.path study is an ongoing mixed method, stepped wedge and randomized controlled trial in Bergen, Bærum and Kristiansand municipality. 280 persons with dementia and their caregivers are included to complete the LIVE (Learning, Innovation, Volunteering and Empowerment) intervention. The main aim of the study is to investigate the impact on resource utilization in dementia care (RUD) and caregiver burden.
