About me

  • I am a licensed psychologist with an Msc from Uppsala University. Since I
    received my degree in 2017, I have worked in the field of work and
    organizational psychology, mainly with psychological testing, assessments,
    group and leadership development. Parallel to my psychology studies I also
    worked as a cabin crew for six years.
    Since January 2021, I am a doctoral student at the Department of Clinical
    Neuroscience, Division of Psychology.


  • My research interest lies mainly in the conditions of modern working life and
    what consequences these have for individuals' health and safety work within
    organizations. Specifically, my interest is how working conditions and
    organization can be linked to safety within complex high-risk organizations.
    I work in the project /Sustainable flight safety - Developing instruments for
    identifying key risk factors, and models for interventions that enable
    proactive and sustainable flight safety work/. The project examines the
    flight safety consequences of pilots' and cabin crews' working conditions -
    as well as how sustainable safety can be created within the framework of the
    special conditions that prevail in aviation.
    My doctoral project is investigating the effects of the changed employment
    conditions for cabin crew working conditions, stress-related ill health and
    passenger and flight safety (Project name /Feeling the Cabin Pressure?
    Organizational and Psychosocial Factors Associated with Health and Safety
    Risks among Cabin Crew/.)
