Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Oslo

Daniel is a Research Fellow at the University of Oslo in Biological Psychiatry. His research revolves around three interconnected themes; 1) Heart rate variability and cardiorespiratory oscillations in psychiatric illness, 2) Oxytocin’s modulatory effects on social cognition and behaviour, and 3) The neurobiological basis of social cognition in psychiatric illness.
