I am a PhD research fellow at the project: The Lillehammer Neurodevelopmental Follow-Up Study (LINEUP). LINEUP is a longitudinal study of children and adolescents with the neurodevelopmental disorders ADHD, ASD, and Tourettes syndrome. Currently we are examining 10-year follow-up data, when participants are young adults. Participants have been assessed with questionnaires measuring mental health, quality of life, and functional impairments, as well as neuropsychological tests of executive functions. Our aim is to identify developmental trajectories and childhood factors affecting mental health, quality of life, and functional impairments in young adulthood.
My PhD will focus on developmental trajectories of mental health and decision-making, associations between changes in executive functions and mental health, and predictors of functional impairment and mental health in young adulthood.
My research interests are within neurodevelopmental disorders and developmental psychology. My interests and research span topics such as cognition and cognitive development in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders, mental health and psychosocial interventions for individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders, and psychosocial adjustment of siblings of children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
