About me

MD, PhD, Specialist in psychiatry and addiction medicine


Research description

My PhD-thesis (2017) investigated the role of the brain opioid system in amphetamine addiction, using the imaging techniques PET and fMRI. As a post-doc, I have continued to work with neuroimaging, both at Karolinska Institutet and at the Zentralinstitut für Seelische Gesundheit in Mannheim, Germany. I am also involved in clinical trials of pharmacotherapy for substance use disorders.
