I am a senior scientist at the Norwegian Centre for Violence and Traumatic Stress Studies. My main area of interest is the psychological impact of forced migration, war and terror. Within this context, I study cognitive mechanisms in PTSD, EMDR and smartphone-based treatment of PTSD (e.g. using Tetris and mindfulness) and try to develop large, scalable treatment interventions targeting refugees’ and asylum-seekers’ mental health. As a Kama Muta Lab member, I am interested in kama muta experiences in relation to music in general and opera in particular and how such experiences affect our behaviour and mood.
