Om mig

My primary research and clinical interests are in behavioral medicine and the relationship between psychological processes and physical complaints. I am also interested in the philosophy of science and research methodology. In the past 10 years, I have done work primarily in eHealth strategies to psychological treatment and the assessment and characteristics of pathological health anxiety. My current main lines of research are:

  1. Common mechanisms in, and transdiagnostic psychological treatments for, distress related to persistent somatic symptoms
  2. Understanding and managing the psychological long-term effects of cancer, and especially cancer forms with an otherwise relatively good prognosis
  3. Understanding and managing pathological health anxiety, i.e., the recurrent and excessive fear of, or preoccupation with, serious disease
  4. Psychological treatments to improve clinical outcomes in somatic conditions such as paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome
  5. Assessment of, and Internet-delivered psychological interventions for, clinical depression, the common anxiety disorders, and chronic stress disorders, with particular emphasis on primary care
