I’m a cognitive neuroscientist at Oslo University Hospital investigating the biopsychosocial factors that shape patient experiences and outcomes, the nature of the patient-clinician interaction, and how these aspects play out in clinically challenging conditions such as chronic pain.
To address these research questions, I use a multimodal approach combining observational assessment of naturalistic patient-clinician interactions with experimentally controlled designs using behavioral (facial expressions, eye tracking), psychological (self-report state and trait assessment), physiological (autonomic measures, brain imaging, pharmacological challenges), and experimental manipulation of expectations, psychological state, and pain.
