About me

Anders Sand is since September 2019 employed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Division of Speech and Language Pathology (CLINTEC), Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. He completed his doctoral degree in Psychology in 2016 at Stockholm university.

Anders Sand has worked in many different fields of experimental psychology; using electroencephalography to study attention and emotion, in psycho-acoustics, and social decision making. In his doctoral degree, he focused on attention and psychophysics. The one through-line (since his Bachelor in theoretical philosophy) has been his interest in statistics and inferential reasoning (e.g., Bayesian inferences).

After long periods of teaching research methods and statistics to students in Speech and language pathology (logopeder), Anders Sand is now employed as a postdoc at that Division. He mainly acts as a statistical counsel and is involved in that capacity in different research projects. Anders Sand is also one of the principal drivers of a systematic review on the evidence for the benefits of speech and language therapy for persons with cleft palate ± lip with speech disorders.
