About me

  • PhD (Karolinska institutet), licensed psychologist (Stockholm university).
    I work at the Division of Psychology at the Department of Clinical
    Neuroscience at KI. I am a member of Pia Enebrink's research group where I do research in clinical psychology.

    I teach at the undergraduate and advanced levels and conduct research in clinical
    psychology. As a psychologist, I have worked clinically in primary care as
    well as child and adult psychiatry.

    * Licensed psychologist, degree from Stockholm University in 2008.
    * PhD, degree from Karolinska Institute in 2020.


  • I have a broad clinical research interest. Excessive worry is common among
    both young people and adults. Strong and uncontrollable worry can increase
    the risk of other mental health problems, sleep disturbances, and substance
    abuse. In my research, I investigate theory-driven psychological treatments
    for worry in adolescents and adults. I hope to increase the understanding of
    how these treatments affect worry and secondary symptoms such as anxiety and
    depression, as well as how patients experience them.
    I also work with development and evaluation of parent support programs and
    psychological support for people who have undergone open heart surgery.
    In addition to clinical psychological research, I am interested in how
    contextual factors (such as climate change) affect mental health.
