Areas of expertise
early life stress; prenatal stress; stress; depression; anxiety; child psychiatry; adolescent psychiatry; gut-brain axis

Research
I did my PhD within the field of psychiatric epidemiology and adolescent depression. During by PhD studies I also was involved in clinical epidemiological studies on adolescent mood disorders. In 2010, we established a birth cohort, the FinnBrain Birth Cohort Study, with the main aim of investigating the how early life and prenatal stress shape brain developmental trajectories. I am the co-PI of the highly multidisciplinary Cohort.  My own research activity within the larger cohort is focused on the development of the gut-brain axis and child psychosocial development and the role of diverse prenatal exposures in these processes. My activity as a supervisor is also multidisciplinary as the PhD candidates represent, fo example, variety of fields of medicine and psychology.

Teaching
I am senior lecturer in child psychiatry, but currently in the leave of absence.
