About me

  • Associate Professor in psychology, Licensed Psychologist
    I work full time as a researcher since a few years back, but I also have a
    background as a clinical psychologist within occupational and environmental
    medicine and as a HR-consultant within leader selection and leadership
    2019 Associate Professor in Psychology, Stockholm University
    2009 PhD Karolinska Institutet

    Medicine, Karolinska Institutet
    2003 Master in Psychology Stockholm University


  • One of my main research areas concerns how leadership in the workplace is
    associated with stress, health, and health-related consequences among
    employees. In 2014-2017 I led a project financed by FORTE investigating the
    work situation, health and career development of female managers. During
    2017-2019, I ran two projects investigating the causes of increased mental
    ill-health and sickness absence among employees working in female-dominated
    industries and occupations. The projects focus on organisational and
    psychosocial work factors as well as factors in unpaid domestic work. In
    2019-2021 I am leading a project financed by FORTE on antecedents and health
    consequences of gender-based harassment. I have also led a systematic
    research review on health consequences of physical, psychological, and
    gender-based workplace violence, commissioned by FORTE. I am part of the
    steering group of the cohort study Swedish Longitudinal Occupational Survey
    of Health (SLOSH), at the Stress Research Institute, Stockholm University.


  • I teach and supervise master and doctoral students at Karolinska institutet,
    Stockholm University and Uppsala University.
