My research deals with the use and development of communication aids, universal design, and the combination of human and technical support in various use situations. 

Currently, I am the project manager for Mitt liv, mina ord (My life, my words), with a focus on participation, self management and a rich and growing vocabulary for individuals who use Voice Output Communication aids. The project is supported by the Swedish Inheritance Fund.

Between 2011 and 2021 I have also participated in several other R&D projects at Certec. They include CISCOS (that dealt with realizing the CRPD at a local level), Speducult (about Multisensory environments), STARR (reducing the risk for a second stroke), TEMA (technological and human assistance), ABBI (Audio Bracelets for Blind Interaction), NavMem (Navigation Support for Older Travellers with Memory Decline), and DIKO- den digitala kontaktboken (Digital photo diaries). 

On 4 June 2010, I defended my doctoral thesis entitled "The Growth of Phrases. User-centred Design for Activity-based Voice Output Communication Aids" at the University of Gothenburg.
