Associate professor (docent) in clinical psychology and Head of the Digital Psychiatry Lab at the Centre for Psychiatry Research, where I also serve as Research and Development Coordinator for the addiction field. I am employed as a clinical psychologist at the Stockholm Centre for Dependency Disorders (Region Stockholm), where I am Head of Research and Development at the Maria Ungdom Clinic.

Starting autumn 2022, I am enrolled in KI's Future Academic Leaders program.
My research covers a broad spectrum of digital psychiatry, with three primary tracks:
- Clinical applications of Virtual Reality and other immersive technologies.
- Online psychological treatments for addictive and mental disorders, in particular in routine care
- Online gambling and responsible gambling tools

I am an experienced and trained university teacher, with more than1500 hours of accumulated teaching experience (including more than 20 supervised student theses). Currently adjunct lecturer and head of course at the Competence Centre for Psychotherapy, at Karolinska Institutet, primarily on the topic of child psychiatry. I supervise and co-supervise several PhD students, all in the field of digital psychiatry, as well as a postdoc.
I am passionate about the scientist-practioner model and how to anchor education in clinical needs. As an eHealth researcher, making full use of the inherent capabilities of eLearning is another interest.
