Annakarin Olsson's research is conducted in the field of care and support for older people, their relatives, and healthcare professionals. In her role as program manager (shared mission) for the research program "Digital Shapeshifting", within the strategic research area of Health Promoting Work, her research also focuses on digitization and the societal challenges associated with it.

Her dissertation, titled "Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Support in the Daily Life of People with Dementia and Their Relatives," aimed to describe the attitudes and experiences of people with dementia (care recipients) and their relatives (caregivers) towards the use of ICT support in their daily lives.
