Kort presentation

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Psychology at Uppsala University and a Licensed Psychologist. I completed my PhD at Stockholm University in 2017, followed by almost two years of research at University College London, where I am currently an Honorary Associate Professor. I completed a position as a Post Doctoral Researcher at Karolinska Institutet in 2021, where I am presently an adjunct researcher, doctoral supervisor, and principal investigator.

After graduating from the study programme in psychology in 2011 with a MSc I worked as a clinical psychologist at an outpatient psychiatric care unit and as an adjunct lecturer at the Centre for Psychiatry Research at Karolinska Institutet. I became a Licensed Psychologist in Sweden in 2012 and have continued doing part-time clinical work in different settings ever since. I completed my PhD at the Department of Psychology at Stockholm University in 2017 with a doctoral thesis on the negative effects of Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy. After my dissertation I spent almost two years as a researcher at the Institute of Child Health at University College London, where I am currently an Honorary Associate Professor. I completed a post doctoral position at the Centre for Psychiatry Research at Karolinska Institutet in 2021, where I am presently an adjunct researcher, doctoral supervisor, and principal investigator for the implementation of patient-controlled admissions to inpatient care in Region Stockholm. Since 2021, I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Psychology at Uppsala University.

My research concerns four broad topics:

  1. Transdiagnostic issues and behavioural problems related to psychiatric disorders, such as perfectionism and procrastination.
  2. Negative effects and malpractice issues related to psychological treatments.
  3. Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy.
  4. Implementation and effectiveness of novel methods in inpatient care, for instance patient-controlled admissions.

I have currently 58 publications in international peer-reviewed journals, with an h-index of 16 (Scopus). For a complete overview, see my ORCID.

I have released three self-help books in Swedish: Dansa på deadline, Tio i tolv, and Bättre än perfekt.

I am currently supervising two doctoral students:

  • Emelie Allenius at the Centre for Psychiatry Research at Karolinska Institutet (Patient-controlled admissions for patients with severe psychiatric disorders), 2021-
  • Maria Smitmanis Lyle at the Centre for Psychiatry Research at Karolinska Institutet (Patient-controlled admissions for children and adolescents with severe mental health disorders), 2021-

I have previously supervised one doctoral student:

  • Matilda Berg at the Department of Behavioural Sciences and Learning at Linköping University (Learning and knowledge in cognitive behaviour therapy), 2017-2021.
