I graduated from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in 2017 with an MSc in psychology, specialization in learning – brain, behavior, environment. I have an interdisciplinary background holding a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a bachelor’s degree in political science from NTNU.

I’m currently a Ph.D. candidate affiliated with the project Clinical encounters with refugees suffering from mental health problems. I’ve been a member of the research group Society and Workplace Diversity since August 2018.

My research interests:

  • Cultural differences in conceptualizations of mental health, help-seeking behavior and coping strategies
  • Decolonization of research
  • Qualitative research methods
