Bakgrund

Since 2000 I have been researching in three main areas: (1) Risk factors for severe physical and mental health problems in samples of drug abusers, and delinquent and violent behavior associated with substance misuse, (2) Violence and reoffending risk assessment and risk factors associated with delinquent careers in forensic and community samples of adolescents and young adults, and (3) The relationship between psychopathy, parenting and antisocial behavior. Two postdoctoral positions at the Research Unit on Children's Psychosocial Maladjustment in Montréal and at the Center for Developmental Research in Örebro University allowed me to add a developmental perspective to my work.
Since 2016 and in collaboration with the Swedish police and local municipalities I am conducting evaluation research for the application of a problem oriented policing strategy to an open drug market, accomplishing with the new national crime prevention plan.
