  • I am a researcher within the area of occupational medicine. My research is
    focused on physical and psychosocial working conditions in relation to health
    outcomes and a sustainable working life. I study exposures such as heavy
    lifting, uncomfortable working postures and low job control. Main outcomes
    are musculoskeletal disorders, work ability and early exits from the labor
    market through long-term sick leave, disability pension and other exit
    routes. Other areas for my research are occupational rehabilitation, methods
    and practices for occupational health services, and health effects of
    precarious employment conditions.


  • I am a course leader and teacher at the Master's Programme in Work and Health
