About me

  • PhD student at the unit of Occupational Medicine, researching non-standard
    employment conditions and implications for health and well-being.
    After obtaining my Msc degree in Population Health and Health Equity from
    Stockholm University in 2020, I worked as a research assistant and
    coordinator at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) at Karolinska
    Institutet. Since March 2021 I am a PhD student at the unit of Occupational
    Medicine at KI.
    My general research interests are related to the future of work and
    associated challenges, and different ways to measure the quality of
    employment and working conditions.


  • In my PhD project I study the link between different types of non-standard
    employment arrangements and various health and well-being outcomes across
    several policy contexts, using both quantitative, qualitative and
    mixed-methods approaches. Some of this research is part of the Precarious
    Work Research project (PWR)
    Unequal access? Use of sickness absence benefits by precariously employed workers with common mental disorders: a register-based cohort study in Sweden.
    Experiences of insecurity among non-standard workers across different welfare states: A qualitative cross-country study.
    Non-Standard Employment and Unemployment during the COVID-19 Crisis: Economic
    and Health Findings from a Six-Country Survey
    Precarious Employment and Psychosocial Hazards: A Cross-Sectional Study in
    Stockholm County
