About Cecilia Pettersson

Cecilia defended her thesis at the research center Center for Aging and Supportive Environments (CASE) at Lund University in 2014 with the thesis "Powered mobility device use: participation and accessibility". Cecilia has many years of clinical experience of rehabilitation and occupational therapy. She has been a post doc in the research environment Center for the Architecture of Care at Chalmers University of Technology and is interested in research on architecture and care of older people in ordinary housing. She is interested in opportunities and barriers when home- and health care are provided in ordinary housing. Cecilia is also interested in accessibility and participation in society for people who use mobility devices and is involved in an ongoing project that focuses on inadequate accessibility and discrimination, and project at WHO (Global Research, Innovation, and Education in Assistive Technology (GREAT) Summit). Cecilia is also interested in re-ablement (everyday rehabilitation) and is involved in several projects about that approach.

Teaching
Cecilia teaches on the basic and advanced levels in areas related to participation, accessibility and assistive technology. She is a supervisor in thesis courses (graduate and master theses).

Assignments
Since 2016 Cecilia is nominated by the Swedish Association of Occupational Therapists (Sveriges Arbetsterapeuter) to contribute with knowledge in the "Expert panel".
