About me

  • I am a PhD student at the Center for Psychiatry Research and a licensed
    clinical psychologist. My clinical work and my research focus on patients
    with psychosis and schizophrenia.
    Master of Science in Psychology, 2013, Stockholm University
    Licensed clinical psychologist, 2014
    PhD student, 2019 - present, Karolinska Institute


  • My main research focus is cognition in individuals with psychosis and how
    this relates to brain function, genetics and functional outcome. To study
    this I utilize methods such as molecular brain imaging, cognitive testing and
    the national Swedish registries. The clinical platform for my studies is the
    Karolinska Schizophrenia Project (KaSP), an ongoing multidisciplinary
    collaboration between several research groups and several psychiatric clinics
    in Stockholm. To read more about the project, please
    Ultimately I hope that my research can lead to a better understanding of the
    biological underpinnings of cognitive impairment in psychosis, and
    potentially to new effective treatments for these symptoms.
