Background and activities
Post doc at the Trondheim Sleep and Chronobiology Research Group. I am currently working and coordinating the multicenter study NORSE4, at the department of mental health. This is a randomized controlled trial where we are investigating the effect of digital cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia for patients (N=800) referred to mental health services in Norway
I am also working on a project at St.Olavs Hospital that involved follow-up and treatment of patients with mild traumatic brain inury. We are spesifically investigating the effect of acceptance and commitment therapy for this patient group.
I wrote my PhD on sleep and mild traumatic brain injury.
