PhD  and clinical psychologist working on cognitive functioning in depression. Research interests include clinical neuropsychology in general, and cognitive functioning in psychiatric disorders in particular. Hereunder, the relationship between affective material, emotional regulation and executive functions is of interest. Interventions for improving/remediating cognition, like working memory training, is part of my graduate work. In addition, I have some experience in cognitive neuroscience, from gerontopsychiatry assessing various forms of dementia and neuropsychiatric illnesses, and child habilitation assessing learning disorders related to developmental- and neurological conditions in children and adolescents. Became a specialist in clinical psychology, sub specialization in work on clinical neuropsychology in the spring of 2020. I worked part time as a neuropsychologist at a outpatient clinic for affective disorders a Sandviken psychiatric clinic, Haukeland University Hospital, from autumn 2021-spring 2023. In addition, I teach courses on amongst other subjects, WAIS-IV. Currently I am working as a neurospychologist at the neurology department at Haukeland University Hospital, and hold a 20% associate professorship at UiB.
