Otto Simonsson

Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Karolinska Institutet's Department of Clinical Neuroscience. My research is broadly focused on the spread of meditation in society and the effects of mindfulness-based and compassion-based interventions on affective polarization and other intergroup biases.

I completed my DPhil thesis ("Meditative practices - correlates and consequences for political attitudes") at the University of Oxford's Department of Sociology.
