As a PhD candidate at the University of Bergen, I work directly under Professor Stephanie Le Hellard in the "Epigenetics and Multiomics" group. In my PhD project, I also work closely with the research group led by Associate Professor Renato Polimanti, Yale University, USA.

My main interest is to better understand complex disorders, especially mental disorders, using large datasets and "-omics" methods like phenomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and epigenomics. My curiosity is also directed to artificial intelligence and precision medicine.

In this project we are aiming to identify DNA-methylation patterns in patients with severe mental disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder) which is specific for childhood trauma.

  • "Impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the level of distress in the BRYDEG2020: a Norwegian cohort". In this project, we are aiming to map the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health, with a special focus on young adults.
