PhD-project (2016-2020):

Psychiatric comorbidities in ADHD;

by linking information from four nationwide, population-based registries: The Medical Birth Registry of Norway, established in 1967, the Norwegian Prescription Database, established in 2004, the Norwegian Patient Registry, with data from 2008, and the National Educational Database (NUDB) from Statistics Norway.

First paper studied gender differences in adults with ADHD in risk of psychiatric disorders compared with the remaining population without ADHD, published in Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica 2017 (see publication list for details)

Second paper aimed to investigate different patterns in psychiatric comorbidities in adults with ADHD, ASD or both ADHD and ASD, and evaluate these patterns with genetic correlations from summary statistics, published in Biological Psychiatry 2019 (see publication list for details)
