About me

My current research focuses on the consequences of sick leave and risk factors for stress-related sick leave using data from the Swedish Twin Registry, questionnaires and other sources. 

My PhD project was focused on using exercise as a treatment for mild to moderate depression. The data came from a large RCT, the Regassa study ( and included treatment as usual and three exercise groups of varying intensity. 

Additionally I have worked on a project regarding risk and protective factors for fall injuries in elderly. In this project we used data from registers and the Stockholm Public Health Cohort.
