Analysis of interviews with healthcare professionals

The project is about improving the transition from pediatric to adult healthcare. A large part of Milena's work will be to conduct qualitative text analysis of interviews with healthcare professionals. The interviews are about their views on the transition, and how it can be improved.

Analyzing texts is something new for Milena, who has a bachelor's degree in biomedicine and is doing her master thesis in the master's programme in pharmaceutical modelling.

– It is new and exciting for me to work with interviews as research data, says Milena. It's fun to be able to see and understand the data without having to look at graphs like I usually do.

Enjoys reading books

One of Milena's favorite leisure activities is reading books, especially dystopias and classics.

– My favorite book is A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. It's neither a dystopia nor a classic, but I think it's really good.
