Om mig

Psychology graduate degree from Uppsala University in Sweden (year 2012), licenced psychologist from the Swedish National board of Health and Wellfare year (year 2013) and registered as a PhD-student at the Dept. of Clinical Neurosciences at the Karolinska Institute (year 2016). My current position as a clinical psychologist at the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) Research Center is mainly focused on clinical research on youth with social anxiety disorder.  

Since my psychology degree I have had a postition as clinical psychologist within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in Stockholm, Sweden. I was accepted to the doctoral program at the Karolinska institute in 2016 and have since then been the project leader of two clinical trials focusing on the development and evaluation of internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy for youth with social anxiety disorder.  


My research is mainly focused on the development and evalutation of internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy (ICBT) for youth with social anxiety disorder (SAD). The treatment has to date been evaluated in a pilot trial (see publication below) and a randomized controlled trial (ongoing). I am interested in the clinical outcomes, as well as health economy and mechanisms of change. 

I am also involved in other trials regarding anxiety disoders in youth, such as an effectiveness trial evaluating the dissemination of ICBT for children as well as eye-tracking trials for youth with SAD (compared to youth with autism spectrum disorders or non-clinical controls).
