About me

I work as a child and adolescent psychiatrist at PRIMA in Handen, Southeast of Stockholm. Today I regard myself as a clinician with a true passion for the children and adolescents I meet in my daily practice. It is my wish to combine my post graduate courses and my PhD-project with a continuing clinical practice in order to accomplish a higher goal of being a clinical researcher bridging the gap between research and clinical practice in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

Research description

Because of the early presentations of neurodevelopmental disorders it is natural for me to focus attention there. I have joined the ongoing RATSS-project at the Center of Neurodevelopmental Disorders at Karolinska Institutet, KIND, studying early medical adversities and possible environmental etiologies of autism.

Teaching portfolio

I am since 2016 and ongoing, holding lectures in clinical child and adolescent psychiatric practice for last semester psychology students at Stockholm University, Sweden.
