I am a doctoral student, research assistant, and case worker. I am involved in several research-related activities at National Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention (NASP). I analyze and disseminate suicide-related statistics, for example via our Statistics Page and the network Suicide Prevention in Sweden (SPIS). I also review, synthesize and disseminate research findings and evidence-based recommendations through the resource pages Recommendations for suicide-preventive interventions (RESPI) and the School Health Portal.
I have a master’s degree in psychology. My doctoral thesis in medical science pertains to mental health, suicidal thoughts and behaviors in adolescents, and particularly how this is related to screen time and the use of internet-based media. For example, I explore risk factors, protective factors, and psychological mechanisms that are important for mental health. My research is mainly based on data materials collected through the projects Youth Aware of Mental Health (YAM) and Suicide Prevention through Internet and Media Based Mental Health Promotion (SUPREME).
My office is located at Granits väg 4, Solna (entrence floor).
