My PhD-work concerns maturational changes in brain and cognition from childhood to young adulthood. I'm part of the research group Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition, which is led by Professor Anders M. Fjell and Professor Kristine B. Walhovd, where I'm working on a longitudinal study of adolescents led by Christian K. Tamnes.

Test subjects undergo neurocognitive tests and brain imaging at multiple time points, with the aim of providing an increased understanding of the complex relationship between the maturation of the brain and the development of cognitive functions during adolescence.
