About me

As a clinical researcher, my research aims at improving the reality of mental health care for young people with severe mental disorders, such as borderline personality disorder or psychosis. To achieve this, collaboration with patients and their families as well as clinicians is essential for me. I have a special interest in the usage of digital technologies that can be applied across diagnostic boundaries, severity spectrums and stages of treatment. For example, we use ecological momentary assessment and intervention to complement traditional clinical services and address some of the key limitations of current care.
