I am the co-director of the Center for Genetic Epidemiology and Mental Health – PsychGen, and a research professor at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. I am interested in getting new knowledge on how genetic and environmental factors play together to influence the development of common mental health problems in children and adolescents. Currently, I am leading Nordic projects investigating risk and resilience in the population during the Covid-19 pandemic. I also hold a position at the PROMENTA research center, teaching personality. As a member of the scientific advisory board in MoBa, I am interested in the future of MoBa, questionnaire development and participant engagement. I am also one of the leaders of the PsychGen working group for Open and Reproducible Science.
