Background and activities

Project coordinator for the multicenter study NORSE4, at the department of mental health. In NORSE4 we are investigating the effects of a digital version of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia at different health centers in Norway. 

I am also a project coordinator for a project that investigates the effects of physical activity for patients with prolonged problems after minimal and mild traumatic brain injury at the department of neuromedicine and movement science and the clinic of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

I am also a Ph.d. candidate at the Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory (CNL), Department of Psychology, NTNU. I have been working on longitudinal data on sleep-wake disturbance and fatigue during the first year after mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). In a follow-up project, we are investigating the effects of partial sleep deprivation on individuals with mTBI and prolonged problems after injury using actigraphy, cogntive testing, interview and questionnaires.
