About me

  • After graduating from the Psychology Program in 2011 with a MSc I worked as a clinical psychologist at an outpatient psychiatric care unit and as an adjunct lecturer at the Centre for Psychiatry Research at Karolinska Institutet. I became a Licensed Psychologist in Sweden in 2012 and have continued doing part-time clinical work in different settings ever since. I finished my PhD at the Department of Psychology at Stockholm University in 2017 with a doctoral thesis on the negative effects of Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy, supervised by Professors Per Carlbring, Gerhard Andersson, and Johanna Boettcher. After my dissertation I spent two years as a researcher with Professor Roz Shafran at the Great Ormond Street Hospital Institute of Child Health at University College London. I then completed a Post Doctoral position for Associate Professor Tobias Lundgren at the Centre for Psychiatry Research at Karolinska Institutet in 2021, where I am presently an Adjunct Researcher, doctoral supervisor, and principal investigator for the implementation of patient-controlled admissions to inpatient care in Region Stockholm. Since 2021, I am an Associate Professor [docent] and Study Director at the Department of Psychology at Uppsala University. Furthermore, I am a visiting Associate Professor at Luleå University of Technology and the Editor-in-Chief for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
