Helle Stangeland graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) with an MSc in Organisational and Social Psychology in 2016. She received her undergraduate MA in Psychology at the University of Edinburgh and has also completed an MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences at University College London (UCL) previously. Currently Helle is working as a clinical research coordinator in the Division of Clinical Neuroscience at Oslo University Hospital.
During her time at LSE Helle used the Subjective Evidence-Based Ethnography (SEBE) method to study high-risk decision making and learning within the Norwegian Police Service. Her MSc project focused on technology-enhanced learning in operative policing and investigated the potential of expert illustration videos and SEBE as learning tools among Norwegian police novices. Her project was supervised by Professor Saadi Lahlou and Dr Sophie Le Bellu and is part of an ongoing collaboration between the LSE and the Norwegian Police University College.
Helle also has experience as an occasional research assistant for the SEBE Lab. She has also worked as a support worker and as a research assistant within psychiatry previously.
Helle’s research interests include high-risk decision making, technology-enhanced learning and cognition. She is especially interested in how organizational knowledge can best be transferred from experts to novices among high-risk professionals. Additionally, her research interests also include brain development across the lifespan, stroke, traumatic brain injury, psychosis and comorbidity.
