Research interests

My research interest focuses on practice-based health promotion research with sports (in a broad sense) as an arena. This includes methodologically diverse research on health promoting sports clubs (HPSC) based on different starting points, levels and target groups. The research is often conducted in cooperation with public health, NGO:s, schools and sports practitioners.

I am a part of the research team ReShape as well as co-leading the international HPSC-network. I am also involved in the Swedish research school SMOVE (Sustainable Movement Education) as well as the Sustainable Sport Management Education and Research group.
