From an empirical and a theoretical perspective I study processes of understanding in interaction. In particular, I'm interested in the processes related to interactants' understanding of their own and each others mental states.

Current research

  • Patient-centeredness at pharmacies
  • Tele-health communication

Primary fields of research

  • Understanding and challenged understanding
  • Mentalization theory
  • Identifying mentalizing processes through interaction analytic methods
  • Emotions in interaction
  • Grief in relations and conversations
  • Doctor-patient interation
  • Interaction between young people in residental care and their care givers
  • Vidoe-stimulated interviews
  • Psychodynamic theory and interaction analysis
