About me

I'm forensic psychiatrist currently working in Niuvanniemi hospital, Kuopio, Finland. Part-time I'm also a PhD student, affiliated in Karolinska Institutet in Ellenor Mittendorfer-Rutz' research group. The aim of my study is to investigate the real-world effectiveness of pharmacological treatments of substance dependences (alcohol, opioid and amphetamine dependences). The effectiveness of medications is measured with hospitalizations, sickness absence, disability pensions and mortality.
