I study the complexities of brain structure, function, and behaviour using multidisciplinary approaches. I have a BSc in biomedical sciences and minors in both psychology and biology. I have a MSc in anatomical science where I studied cognitive abilities in stroke patients with longitudinal follow-up. My PhD is in medical sciences and I studied the association between cerebral cortical thickness and stress related phenotypes with analyses of gene expression, neuroimaging, and socioeconomic exposures. Currently I am a postdoctoral fellow at Norwegian Centre for Mental Disorders Research (NORMENT) at the University of Oslo. My research broadly focuses on the relationships between imaging, psychiatric disorders, and genetics.
