Wallenberg Postdoctoral Fellowship at Department of Psychology, Stanford University 2020 to 2022.
As a licensed psychologist and scientist, I study maladaptive behaviors, such as self-injury and aggression, theorized to stem from emotion-regulation difficulties. I study these behaviors and their proposed underlying mechanisms from a psychotherapeutic, psychometric, and epidemiological perspective. Beyond studying these phenotypes in registries and evaluating if our treatments are efficacious, I aim to design trials that examine key mechanisms through which treatments work. This has the potential of making already effective treatments even more effective and can deepen our understanding of the etiologies of different phenomenon.
