Personal profile


The main aim of my research is to better understand what causes and maintains psychopathology in children and adolescents. I have a special interest in pediatric OCD and anxiety disorders. I am also involved in research about chronic pain conditions and pediatric diabetes.

Professional work

I work as a senior clinical psychologist within the child and adolescent mental health services in Skåne. The overarching aim of my work as a clinician is to improve assessment of pediatric psychopathology and the treatment of pediatric OCD and anxiety disorders. I lead a training clinic in Lund where psychology students conduct supervised clinical work and are trained in evidence-based assessment and treatment of pediatric psychopathology.


I have ongoing research collaborations with research groups at Karolinska Insitutet, Stockholm, Uppsala University, Temple University, Pennsylvania, and Baylor College of Medicine, Houston. I also collaborate with researchers at the Department of Psychology and Pediatrics here at Lund University.
