About me

Licensed Psychologist and PhD student at Stockholm University.

My research subject is within the multi-professional field of intervention programs for Extreme Preterm children in interaction with their caregivers. The aim of the intervention is to promote the executive functions of the child and in the long-term perspective provide the Extreme Preterm child with optimal conditions for learning and health when growing up. My principal supervisor is professor Mara Westling Allodi from the department of Special Education Stockholm University and assistant supervisor is professor Ann-Charlotte Smedler from the department of Psychology Stockholm University.

I have worked as a clinical Psychologist since 2008 within various fields, such as forensic psychotherapy, organizational psychology and currently at the child- and adolescent psychiatry in Stockholm. My main interests are developmental issues of small children and multi-professional solutions and challenges where psychiatry interacts with somatic conditions.

Licensed psychologist and PhD student in Special Education in a multidisciplinary research project focused on early intervention of extremely preterm borm children and their parents. The project is a cooperation between Stockholm University, Karolinska Institute and the four intensie neonatal care units in Stockholm. Principal supervisor is Professor Mara Westling Allodi and assistant supervisor is Professor Emerita Ann-Charlotte Smedler.

Extremely preterm born children often spend over three months at the neonatal clinic before they come home for the first time. The hospital ward is full of knowledgable professionals constantly advising, supporting and interacting with the parents, but once home the situation drastically changes for most families and there is a lack of support in this process of transition. To reduce stress and increase the positive interactions between parents and children, our study will offer home-visits for the forst year of the child's life. The aim of the study is to improve the long-term outcome of the child, parental mental health and the positive baby-parental interaction.  

We will begin include for our study in September 2018.
