​Curriculum vitae

I work as a neuropsychologist at Center for Neuropsychiatric Depression research, Psychiatric Center Glostrup.
 
My scientific interest is neuropsychiatry, in particularly depression and bipolar affective disorder. I am interested in understanding the underlying biological and neuropsychological mechanisms. As such, I seek to validate new and optimize current treatment options for this patient group.
 
Current project, DANSECT, aims to clarify if it’s possible to predict the patient group treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for a depression who later experience a dysfunction in autobiographical memory. We’re doing this by assessing them with neuropsychological tests, MR-scans, blood samples and questionnaires. You’re always welcome to contact me, should you have questions regarding the project.
 
I have earned my degree as a psychologist from the University of Copenhagen and the University of North Carolina Asheville in the United States. I have previously worked as a neuropsychologist on a rehabilitating facility for patients with moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries.
