Current position

Professor and Director of the Cognitive Developmental Psychology Research Unit, University of Oslo, Norway. The research unit includes five PhD students, two senior researchers, research assistants, and the lab holds EEG and eye tracking cameras.

Academic interests

General cognitive development

My primary research interest concerns cognitive development, with a specific focus on emotional memory and social cognition. Research projects include memory development, development of executive functions, empathy, and emotional regulation. I make use of observational data, interviews as well as more technical advanced method such as EEG (as event related potentials) and eye tracking.

In my lab we conduct infant studies in regard to joint visual attention, emotional regulation, and early social cognition. In particularly, we have demonstrated infants’ capability to detect unexpected events occurring in an everyday context. We also investigate face recognition and bias in regard to age with 5-year-old children employing EEG. In a series of experiments we further map the relationship between working memory and other central executive functions important to learning and memory.

Witness psychology

A major theme in my research has been and still is the development of more efficient interview strategies for children in the legal system. We work both with classical experimental designs, as well as with field studies to learn more about issues related to memory and suggestibility. Themes currently studied include the effects of repeated interviews, induced forgetting, and effects of stress on memory.

The Norwegian jury system has also been a focus in my witness psychological research, and so has evaluations of the general public and expert witnesses’ knowledge about factors affecting reliability in suspects and witness. An ongoing study focus on whether different emotional expressions in the child witness, affects the decision making process in the legal system.

Developmental psychopathology – clinical psychology

As a child psychologist, I am dedicated to integrate experimental research with clinical experience focusing on neuro-cognitive dysfunctions and reactions to trauma. Participants in these projects include children in the child protective service, self injury adolescents in collaboration with Rikshospitalet, children exposed to methadone during pregnancy in collaboration with SERAF, and ME (chronic fatigue) youths in collaboration with Rikshospitalet.
