  • My research concerns socioeconomic inequalities in health with a special
    focus on working life and early exits from the labour market.
    The aim of my doctoral project is to identify factors and processes that
    explain social inequalities in health and early labour market exit among
    older workers. The project will take a life-course perspective where risk
    factors measured both before labour market entry as well as during working
    life and long-term and accumulated exposure to these potential risk factors
    will be examined.
