I am a research professor in the Department of Child Health and Development at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. My background is in experimental and cognitive psychology. I used and use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), Bayesian statistics, and epidemiological methods to research how healthy people and those with mental health problems learn, decide and develop. Nowadays, a good part of my research revolves around modelling risk factors for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and estimating effects of interventions and treatments for ADHD from observational data. My research interests also include quantitative modeling of cognitive and brain processes of learning and decision making in healthy populations and in ADHD. I am also more generally interested in Bayesian statistical modelling.
