I’m associate professor in psychology at the University of Gothenburg and work as a senior lecturer at the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Learning, Linköping University and at the Department of Psychology, Lund University. My research focuses on well-being, personality, organizational psychology, health and free will from a biopsychosocial perspective.
Together with Professors C. Robert Cloninger and Henrik Anckarsäter, I have investigated the role of personality on well-being, resilience, neuropsychiatric disorders, and both dysfunction and suffering in daily life. Together with Professor Sverker Sikström, I have been using Artificial Intelligence to quantify a person’s written apprehension of life events, life narrative, identity, social network interactions, and both to define concepts (e.g., "happiness", "well-being, “who am I?”) and validate measures by mapping people’s narratives to their own responses to common scales (i.e., Quantitative Semantics Test Theory).
I’m also one of the founders and leading senior researcher of the International Network for Well-Being, which is a network of junior and senior researchers and students interested in the Science of Well-Being. Last but not the least, for the past 7 years, I have collaborated with organizations, such as Anthropedia Foundation, in order to develop and test well-being and resilience interventions among different populations (e.g., asylum seekers, long-term unemployed, helping professionals).
