Background and activities

Professor in clinical child- and adolescent psychology, co-head at the Dept. of Psychology and co-PI of the Trondheim Early Secure Study (TESS). The overall aims of TESS are to (1) identify risk factors, co-morbidity, and developmental trajectories of mental health problems; (2) identify individual, interpersonal, and community factors affecting children’s psychosocial development; and (3) identify individual, interpersonal, and community factors affecting children’s weight and health-related behaviours. Data have been gathered biennially for ten years since the participants (N=997) were 4 years old, and the study is currently ongoing. My main research areas are eating behavior, parental food-practices, overweight, sleep/sleep disorders and mental health.
