I work at the Centre for Research on Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CFBUPH) at Karlstad University. Our vision at the CFBUPH is to contribute to improving mental health and wellbeing of young people through excellent and interdisciplinary research focused on broader social and economic living conditions. CFBUPH is mainly funded by external grants.
My main research interest includes resilience and positive development among children and adolescents. Under this umbrella topic, my research to date has covered a wide range of populations and developmental outcomes; from school-aged children to homeless youth to college students, and from behavioral/educational outcomes, to civic/political engagement, and to substance use.
From February 2016, at CFBUPH, I have been focusing on mental health among adolescents, with a particular attention given to exploring and explaining time trend of adolescent mental health.
From 2011 to 2012 I have taught the undergraduate course "Lifespan Human Development" at the Ohio State University, USA.
I have finished my master's degree in child and family studies at Yonsei University, Korea. In 2012, I obtained my ph.D. in Human Development and Family Science at the Ohio State University, USA. Before I started working at CFBUPH, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Örebro University, Sweden.
