My research interests are within social psychology (personality aspects, values, attitudes, political orientation, gender equality), work psychology (interpersonal conflicts in working life), and music psychology (well-being and choral singing).
I lectured and created courses for higher education in several areas of psychology: emotion, social psychology, life span, cognition, personality, work psychology, scientific method, aesthetic psychology (creativity), and political psychology.
I live and work in Stockholm, Sweden. I share the time between working as a therapist in private practice and offering webinars and workshops for professional development (for health care professionals) and writing scientific articles. Since 2023 I am an affiliated researcher at Mälardalens University, Sweden. My research interests are music and health psychology (choral singing, well-being, elderly), political psychology (psychological mechanisms underlying political orientations), and work psychology (equality, counterproductive interpersonal processes). More about my interests (jazz singing, photography) you will find in this link Where is the therapy?
