I am an associate professor in clinical psychology and licensed psychologist and psychotherapist. At the moment I serve as research group leader at Center for Psychiatry research.
After graduating from the psychology program at the department of psychology Uppsala University in 2005 I worked as a clinical psychologist with self-harming female adolescents. In parallell with my clinical work I started my PhD training as well as my training to become a licensed psychotherapist. In my PhD work I developed and evaluated a behavior therapeutic model (ACT) for patients with epilepsy in India and South Africa. At the moment I serve as the section head of health care development at the center for psychiatry research (KI/Region Stockholm) and as research group leader at the Competence center for psychotherapy (KCP).
My main research interest is clinical psychology and how to ease human suffering and increase human effectiveness.
My research includes amongst other things development of treatments for different populations across the lifespan and in different contexts, development of measurement methods, transfer of training, implementational, and theoretical development.
At the moment I serve as main supervisor for three PhD students; Johanna Linde, Gustaf Reinebo and Emma Högberg Ragnarsson and as a cosupervisor for 9 other PhD students.
I have been the program director for KIs psychotherapy program and been teaching clinical psychology for more than 15 years at both the psychology program, the psychotherapy program and in many other contexts.
