I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Division of Insurance Medicine, Department of Clinical Neuroscience. I received my PhD in environmental epidemiology from the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM), Karolinska Institutet in 2018. After my PhD, I worked at the Stress Research Institute, Stockholm University from 2019 to 2021.
I am currently working on sustainable working life project lead by Annina Ropponen. We defined sustainable working life as the absence of labor market non-participation due to unemployment, rehabilitation, sickness absence (SA), or disability pension (DP). Non-participation to labor market has serious consequences for individuals, their families, and the society, but also associated with negative relational, financial and psychological effects. There are large number of studies on risk factors for absence from labor market however sustainable working life has been studied far less.
