Description of research and teaching

Description of research

I work as a senior researcher in the Developmental Psychology Research Group, which is part of a wider multidisciplinary research group, combining expertise from psychology, pediatrics, neonatology, epidemiology and psychiatry. My current research interests are related to preterm birth, especially late preterm birth, and its effects on child's later emotional, social and neuropsychological development. My research interests are also related to specific adversities during prenatal period and their impact on child's development.

 

Teaching

My teaching area in the Institute of Behavioral Sciences is developmental psychology, including courses from basic introduction courses to master level seminars and PhD supervisions.

In 2016 I will complete 60 credits module of University pedagogy that include both basic and subject studies. Studies aim at enhancing teaching skills and understanding of student learning.
