He is a clinical psychologist and head of research and development at the Pain Clinic, Capio St Göran Hospital, in Stockholm, Sweden. His research program is focused on adult and pediatric patients with chronic debilitating health conditions such as pain, to increase accessibility, improve effect sizes, and refine theories, and consists of 4 areas: developing and evaluating behavioral interventions; clarifying change processes and treatment mechanisms; assessment of health and treatment effects; digital solutions for behavioral health and agile development.
