I am a PhD student in neuroscience and behavioral genetics, with focus on autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
My background is in clinical psychology. I studied psychology (MSc) at Lund University (2003-2008), and had my clinical training in Child and Youth Psychiatry (Swedish psychologist license in 2009). In 2011, I joined the Center for Neurodevelopmental Disorders at Karolinska Institutet (KIND).
My research interests are in twin designs and translational multimodal research for identification of biomarkers in neurodevelopmental disorders. I am currently working on these areas within the 'Roots of Autism Twin Study Sweden' (RATSS-CATSS). I was registered as PhD student within the project in Nov 2012, supervised by Prof Sven Bölte (main supervisor), Dr Angelica Ronald and Dr Katell Mevel. Besides the RATSS project, I am involved in the evaluation of the psychometric properties of ADOS and ADI-R.
