About me

I'm a researcher at STAD, a unit within the Centre for Psychiatry Research at the Karolinska Institutet. My research is mainly focused on children having parents with substance use problems. More specifically, I'm interested in developing, evaluating and implementing digital interventions (e.g., web-based interventions) to this target group. Yet another research focus area is community-based alcohol and drug prevention interventions implemented in different arenas such as sporting events and music festivals.
