I work as a lecturer within the field of prehospital care where I focus on research in outside-hospital cardiac arrest.

I have worked at the University of Borås for about four years. Before that, I worked since 30 years in Gothenburg emergency medical service (EMS) system as an ambulance and anesthesia nurse.

I still work 40% in the ambulance and participate in different prehospital projects financed by VG region and Heart lung foundation.
