About me

I am a clinical psychologist and PhD at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience. I am a postdoctoral researcher in David Mataix-Cols research group. My primary research interest is children and adolescents with obsessive-compulsive and related disorders. I am currently involved in the following projects:

  • Development and evaluation of an online parent-delivered prevention programme for children at risk of developing obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
  • Long-term evaluation of internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy in a stepped-care model for children and adolescents with OCD.
  • Evaluation of internet-delivered treatment for children and adolescents with OCD and autism.
  • Evaluation of internet-delivered treatment for adolescents with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). 
  • Evaluation of therapist-supported online cognitive therapy targeting taboo obsessions among adults with OCD.
