Focus in my dissertation was the development of web-based support for families living with depression. My continued research focuses the development of web-based support for families living with mental and/or somatic illness. Other projects have treated the monitoring of physical, mental and oral health in persons with psychosis living within subsidized housing. Several projects have been carried out within the Centre of Evidence-Based Psychosocial Intervention’s (CEPI) activities, including projects on stigma and a mental health first aid program.

I am also member of an interdisciplinary network focusing on eHealth (link). The network was initiated after prior cooperation in an interdisciplinary team at the Pufendorf Institute (link) where we worked on the theme "eHealth: for better for worse - in sickness and in health"
