About me

  • Associate Professor and Consultant Physician in Occupational and Environmental
    Head of the New World of Work research group
    Director of the Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Stockholm

    PhD 2014, Lund University
    MD 2010, Linköping University


  • My main research focus is non-standard employment arrangements and health
    The ever-changing economic environment, technological advancements, general
    weakening of trade unions and changes in labor laws have led to the emergence
    of a variety of non-standard work arrangements. There are significant
    research challenges related to evaluating the consequences of these work
    arrangements that my research aims to address.
    The overall purpose of my current research is to
    1) Deepen the understanding of how non-standard work arrangements affect
    individuals, families and communities and how these contribute to
    inequalities in work environment, health and well-being.
    2) Identify initiatives that counteract the negative effects of non-standard
    work arrangements and increase the ability of workers to participate,
    exercise empowerment, and live healthy lives.
    In addition to this, I have also participated and supported several other
    research projects in Latin America and Myanmar
    Most of my research is funded by Forte and involves researchers from other
    universities in Sweden, Belgium, Spain, Chile, USA and Canada.


  • I supervise both PhD Students and postdocs and occasionally master
    students. I teach and supervise medical students and master students in
    occupational and environmental epidemiology and serve as mentor for medical
    I am the course leader for the elective course "Comparing Health Systems"
    during the last semester at the medical program at KI
