About me

  • I work as a research assistant in the Behavioral Informatics team at the
    Health Informatics Center. My work consists in using to data-driven methods
    to optimize health interventions.
    After playing music my entire life I switched focus to studying cognitive
    science. My primary ambition in this field is to understand human motivation
    and the decision-making processes that shape our behavior. With this
    knowledge I hope to find ways of promoting improved everyday decisions to
    increase health and well-being.
    Bachelor of Music and Cognitive Science, Indiana University
    Master´s degree in Cognitive Science - Linköping University


  • My research aims to develop a data-driven monitoring system to effectively
    track work-related stress reactions over time. Experience sampling data from
    health-care workers is used to model predictors of long-term stress in
    order to detect at-risk individuals.
    Various interventions to improve recovery behaviors are compared using a
    factorial design to determine the optimal system for promoting health. The
    combination of predicting at-risk individuals and developing an
    evidence-based intervention aspires to provide directed, timely, and
    effective interventions to prevent long-term health problems.
