Om Maria Tillfors

Jag disputerade i psykologi hösten 2001 i Uppsala och har sedan hösten 2001 till hösten 2011 arbetat som lektor vid Örebro universitet. Hösten 2011 befordrades jag från lektor till professor och har sedan december 2011 varit anställd som professor vid Örebro universitet. Min forskning handlar generellt om ångestproblematik och specifikt om social ångest. Detta är en av forskningsinriktningarna i Center for Health And Medical Psychology (CHAMP) som är den forskargrupp där jag har min bas. Vidare så arbetar jag med att undersöka psykologiska mekanismer som kan förklara samsjuklighet mellan olika psykiska problem (t ex social ångest och depression) samt mellan psykiska och fysiska problem (t ex social ångest och kronisk smärta). Jag undersöker även psykologiska mekanismer i relation till både utveckling av och kvarhållande av psykisk ohälsa som bl a ångestproblematik. Slutligen arbetar jag också med både behandling och prevention.
