Dr. Andersson did his PhD on novel scalable treatments for patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) which included three large-scale randomized trials testing internet-delivered CBT both as stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with the medication D-Cycloserine and a booster program.

He has over 50 research publications where the majority is internet-based interventions for obsessions, compulsions, tics, excessive worry, trauma memories, health anxiety and pain-elicited avoidance behaviors.
