I’m a researcher in Psychology interested in measuring psychological constructs with words and text responses analyzed with AI. I’m also interested in well-being, harmony in life and sustainable living. I’m currently funded for an international postdoc at the Computer Science Departments at Stony Brook University and the University of Copenhagen.

This study strengthens the evidence that a sad mood and poor sleep relate to mind wandering.
The SWLS-3 and the HILS-3 can efficiently be used together with one shared instruction, without compromising (and in most aspects even yielding small improvements) the psychometric soundness of the scales.
We discuss the implications concerning the differences between maladaptive daydreaming and mind wandering and the possibility of targeting sleep for mind wandering interventions.
We show that combined mood induction procedures can be used in online research to study happy and sad mood.
The study provides preliminary evidence for the MBFP’s cross-cultural validity, and strengthens previous claims for its efficacy as a new, accessible alternative for enhancing wellbeing.
In two studies we investigate the psychometric properties of the Spontaneous and Deliberate Mind Wandering Scales.
We develop an approach using open-ended questions in which the responses are analyzed using natural language processing.
We suggest that the use of computerized methods to quantify and analyze text can be an important tool to move the affective profiles model into the era of big text data
We developed the Harmony in Life Scale (HILS) emphasizing psychological balance and flexibility in life.
We used a computational method to quantitatively investigate the relationship between personality and written narratives of life events.
We explore how affective profiles systematically relate to psychological well-being and harmony in life.
We explore the influences of discrete positive and negative emotions on cooperation in the context of a social dilemma game.
Certain personality traits, such as Extraversion, Openness, and Conscientiousness, relate differently to well-being measures across cultures. Meanwhile, Neuroticism seems to relate similarly across cultures at least with regard to subjective well-being.
