Competence area


Focus area

I am broadly interested in health technology implemented in the field psychiatry. Developing electronic tools that people find useful is my motivation. I have a particular focus on innovative way of developing and integrating electronic tools, such as mobile phone applications and VR technology, which may be used for support and self-help for people with mental disorders.
In 2013, I developed MYPLAN as a safety plan that is freely available in Danish, Norwegian, and English. It is planned as a self-explanatory tool. MYPLAN is currently being tested in a randomized clinical trial in collaboration with the Danish Suicide Prevention Clinics and DRISP. The project is supported by the Danish Tryg Foundation.
My primary competence area is development of and technological support of interventions for people at risk of suicide as well as other group in crisis. Apart from this I am working with maintenance and quality control of technological products.
