About me

  • I work part-time as Principal Researcher in the "Mental health and social integration" (MENTE) research group.


  • My research interests are within 

  • psychiatric epidemiology and especially pharmacoepidemiology. The overall goal is to investigate clinically important topics which have potential for improving patient care and health. This involves investigations on effectiveness and safety of medications, healt-care utilization and medication use patterns. I am also eager to develop new methods which enable achieving these goals by utilizing register-based data. My research projects involve both severe psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) and common mental disorders such as depression as well as substance use disorders which are often comorbid with other psychiatric disorders. Also topics concerning women's health are close to my heart.
