Field of work

I am interested in how students learn and what it takes to understand and develop their competence. In addition, I want to understand students’ and occupational therapists’ clinical reasoning and how students develop into occupational therapists. Evidence-based practice is essential in providing up-to-date occupational therapy. In this area, I am working on my doctoral degree, which is about developing a mobile application, EBPsteps, a learning tool for students to learn evidence-based practice.
