About me

  • I am a post doctoral fellow focusing on studies on psychotherapy education and their influnce on behavior change. My Ph D thesis focused on factors influencing the use of and de-implementation of low-value care. My background is that I am a work and organizational psychologist and have worked as a consultant with organizational and leadership development. I am also involved in courses in work and organizational psychology both at Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University for psychologist students.


  • My Ph D studies focused on factors influencing the use of and de-implementation of low-value care. I have studied this both with scoping
    reviews on the literature, qualitative studies and an intervention study.
