About me

  • I am an Associate Professor in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. I am
    a Research Group Leader and the Head of Unit of the Unit of Occupational
    Medicine at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet.


  • I study joint effects of exposure in Occupational and Environmental settings
    in relation to health effects. My focus however, is on noise, air pollution,
    vibrations and chemicals in the work and living environment in relation to
    health. Outcome measures I study include reproductive outcomes,
    cardiovascular disease and cancer. I am also involved in risk assessment,
    mainly regarding noise exposure and health.
