Research description

I study developmental pathways, correlates and causes of psychiatric ill-health in children and adults. Ever since my 1999 PhD-thesis on young sexual offenders, I am particularly interested in violent and sexual offending behaviours. 

Beyond causality research, I also address the effectiveness of medical and psychosocial interventions against various types of interpersonal violenceFinally, I conduct epidemiological studies of statistically uncommon sexuality and sexual behavior problems in the general population.

Between 2008 and 2016, I worked as a Senior researcher and National scientific advisor at the Swedish Prison and Probation Services (Kriminalvården) R&D. The mission was to contribute to evidence-based practices so that decision-making and client interventions in the Prison and Probation Services are based on the best available empirical knowledge.

In addition to collleagues at the Karolinska institutet and MEB, I collaborate with professionals at the Swedish National Board of Forensic Medicine: Department of Forensic Psychiatry and the Departments of Forensic Psychiatry in Oxford, UK and Aarhus, Denmark.
