As a psychologist and researcher, I am interested in digital mental health solutions and their use in regular care. I am currently part of SAHA, a project aimed at increasing access to digital solutions for refugees with mental health problems. 


As a researcher my focus have been internet-based interventions for better mental health. Topics have included depression, blended treatment, and therapeutic alliance. I have also worked for 15 years at a private company delivering internet-based solutions within the Swedish health care system, conducting research and implementing evidence-based digital interventions in regular care.
