  • My research focuses on the question of how factors in early life, such as
    maternal nutrition and metabolic conditions, infectious diseases, and
    inflammation, can affect later risk of psychiatric disorders, including
    non-affective psychosis and autism spectrum disorders. To evaluate these
    relationships, I use both Swedish population health register data and
    molecular analysis of archived biological samples, such as dried blood spots
    collected during routine neonatal screening for metabolic disorders.
