I have a clinical background as a psychologist with specialization in adult psychiatry and specialist in psychotherapy. I joined the Department of Psychology as an associate professor in September 2021.
My primary research focus is on advancing the clinical assessment and psychotherapeutic treatment of patients with psychiatric disorders. A particular focus is on using new technologies such as virtual reality-based therapy as an augment to psychotherapeutic practice. Additionally, my research focus comprises the assessment of neuro- and social cognitive deficits and functional impairments in psychiatric disorders as well as developing targeted treatments for these deficits.
I am head of VIRTU Research Group at Mental Health Center Copenhagen. VIRTU conduct large-scale clinical trials in different psychiatric disorders comprising psychosis and the ultra-high risk state of psychosis, autism, eating disorders, anxiety disorders. I have strong national and international collaborations with research groups at e.g. Kings College London, University of Melbourne, University of Groningen, University of Dallas.
