I'm Dan Quintana and I'm a researcher in biological psychiatry at the University of Oslo. My research interests include social behavior, the oxytocin system, heart rate variability, and meta-analysis.

I'm currently leading a project investigating the role of the oxytocin system in the development of severe mental illness and metabolic disorder, which is supported by an Excellence Project for Young Researchers grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

I grew up Sydney, but now I live on a island in the Oslo fjord with my wife and daughter.

I'm also a podcaster, co-hosting Everything Hertz and hosting the Physiology and Behavior show.
