About Matilda Wurm

Matilda Wurm is a member of QueerPsy (external research group), SAOL, and the Center for Health and Medical Psychology (CHAMP). She graduated as a psychologist at Örebro University in 2011 and defended her thesis in health psychology in 2018.


Matilda has a background in health psychology where she has researched comorbid pain and emotional problems with a transdiagnostic approach.

Her health psychology research has led to a focus on social factors in the development and maintenance of ill health, which has further developed an existing interest in social stressors that may be experienced by minorities such as LGBTQ+ people (minority stress).

Matilda is currently the primary investigator of a Forte-funded project "Minority stress and minority joy in transgender people: An intervention study" and is also involved in an AFA-funded project on minority stress and microaggressions in the workplace, as well as projects focusing on older LGBTQ+ people.
