My research focused on the neurobiological basis of personality and psychopathology—specifically the connectivity between patterns between cortical and subcortical brain regions. Along the way, it has also become clear to me that the progress in this type of biological psychiatry research is slow, and I would argue much slower than expected one or two decades ago. This led to a curiosity in the interrelated theoretical, methodological, and clinical questions as to why this is the case. In addition, I started working at Arkin, aiming to develop data science solutions that have an actual practical use for therapists.
