Affiliated to research
I have a background as a clinical psychologist specializing in child and adolescent psychology in addition to working as a consultant in organization and safety in rail traffic.
I am currently employed at the Center for Health Economics, Informatics and Healthcare Research (CHIS) at the Stockholm Region and belong to the National Center for Suicide Research and Prevention (NASP) where my job consists of providing expert advise on minimizing suicide in the transport system. The role of expert also includes providing support to various regional and national infrastructure projects, as well as conducting research and innovation in the field.
Given my extensive experience and knowledge in suicide prevention, I am currently trusted as project manager in two major projects. One is alongside Stockholmers public transporter (SL) and focuses on describing the status of today's rail-bound traffic as well as testing and evaluating potentially suicide prevention interventions in the Stockholm metro. The second project is a multi-year research project commissioned by the Swedish Transport Administration with the intention of better understanding the occurrence and cause of suicidal acts at bridges, railways, and road traffic.
